    Each year, a lot of resources are spent trying to modify human behaviour. While some intervention strategies are successful, many fall short of their intended goals. Research shows that those interventions most likely to achieve desired outcomes are based on a clear understanding of the targeted health behaviours and the environmental context in which they occur. Behaviour Change Communication (BCC) has been successfully used by various health promotion programs to improve the well being of target populations. It is a systematic and well planned process that motivate people to adopt and sustain health promoting behaviours and lifestyles.

    Project Cycle Management (PCM) is the process of effectively planning and managing projects, programmes and organizations. It is used widely in the development sector. Development projects sometimes fail because they are badly planned and do not take into account some important factors, particularly the needs and views of stakeholders. PCM ensures that all aspects of projects are considered carefully especially at the formulation stage. A central value of the PCM method is that aspects of the project are reconsidered throughout the project cycle to ensure that any changes which have occurred are included in the project design. As a result, projects are more likely to be successful and sustainable.

    PCM involves a set of planning tools which feed into the logical framework (commonly known as a log frame). The log frame is a matrix which gives a snapshot of the key elements of the project. Some donors now expect log frames to be submitted alongside project proposals. Log frames can seem quite complex to many people. Most organizations find it difficult to fundraise for their projects. This training will therefore serve to demonstrate the process of developing log frames and theories of change in order to increase the ability of organizations to access such funding. The training will also furnish trainees with practical project management skills in all the key phases of a project.

    By the end of the training, trainees will be able to understand how to manage the activities of a project throughout the identification, formulation, planning and implementation cycle.

    Who should attend this training?
    Programme staff of humanitarian and development agencies including project managers, officers and assistants.

    What are the key aspects of the training?

    • Introduction to Project Cycle Management (PCM);
    • Key components of a project;
    • Significant steps in project planning (needs assessment, problem analysis, objective setting and stakeholder analysis);
    • The logical framework approach (LFA);
    • Theory of change (ToC);
    • Human resource management & development in projects;
    • Sustainability mechanisms in development projects.

    What are the main training objectives?
    The following objectives are planned to be achieved by the end of the training:

    • To equip trainees with knowledge, skills and practices on project cycle management including programming, identification, formulation, financing, implementation, monitoring and evaluation;
    • To introduce trainees to project management tools such as the Logical Framework Approach (LFA) as well as participatory approaches commonly used in projects;
    • To strengthen participants competency in effective project management.

    What learning approach and language will be used in the training?
    A mixture of various adult-learning facilitation paradigms will be used including exploratory learning, group discussions, plenary brainstorming, facilitator’s input, case studies and video documentaries among others.

    Hygiene & Sanitation promotion plays a key role in changing collective and individual behaviours together with fostering ownership and sustainable use of water and sanitation facilities. It is upon this premise that IDEAL Public Health and Development Consultancy (IPHDC) has planned to conduct a PHAST, CLTS and CHAST training of trainers. This training is intended to help sector practitioners to accelerate their progress towards achieving the newly adapted Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) especially Goal 6.

    Participatory Hygiene and Sanitation Transformation (PHAST) is a systematic participatory approach consisting of seven sequential steps that culminate in the development of an action plan for addressing the prevailing WASH problems in a given community. It employs Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) and SARAR tools to elicit meaningful and equitable participation of all community members.

    Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) is another hygiene promotion approach that triggers the community into action by conjuring disgust and shame among the members who practice open defecation (OD). Its ultimate objective is to achieve total sanitation marked by zero cases of open defecation or open defecation free (ODF) status. It primarily focuses on change at the community level and not at the individual household level. Furthermore, it uses a non-subsidy approach in which the target community are triggered and left to decide the actions they will take to address their sanitation problems.

    Children's Hygiene and Sanitation Training (CHAST) is an interactive approach for training children on hygiene and sanitation aspects. Its major objective is to infuse critical hygiene practises that children may adopt into their daily lives. By targeting children, the approach envisions not only the immediate changes in behaviours but also long term changes to be passed on to the posterity. This approach is based on the PHAST approach and uses similar facilitation tools though simplified to enable young children to appreciate the messages.

    By the end of the training, trainees will be able to understand which approach or combination thereof that may be most appropriate for their unique contexts.

    Who should attend this training?

    Programme staff of humanitarian and development agencies including project managers, officers, assistants, health workers, hygiene promoters, public health officers and facilitators.

    What are the key aspects of the training?

    • Concepts of community participation, ownership and sustainability.
    • Concepts of hygiene and sanitation in relation to health.
    • The gradual process of hygiene and sanitation behaviour change and the key factors that influence it.

    There is no doubt that disasters in the recent past have become a major global concern and challenge. Increasing disasters are attributed to a number of factors, mainly of human origin, such as environmental degradation; rapid population increase with subsequent exponential expansion of urban centres and other related factors; all these leading to increased population vulnerabilities.

    The trends of disasters are worrying in their nature, frequency and severity. It is upon this premise that plans such as Hyogo Framework of Action (2005) and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (2015) were developed as a way of having collective and coordinated efforts to deal with the aforementioned challenges. Thus, development partners, governments and practitioners have rightly highlighted the need to prioritize mainstreaming DRR/CCA in their development and humanitarian interventions. IDEAL Public Health and Development Consultancy (IPHDC), in recognition of the capacity need for DRR and CCA in the development and humanitarian sector, has planned a five-day training aimed at program planners, decision-makers and implementers.

    Who should attend this training?

    Programme staff of humanitarian and development agencies including project managers, officers and assistants.

    What are the key aspects of the training?

    • Overview of DRR & CCA in relation to humanitarian and development actions.
    • Definitions of concepts and key terminologies.
    • Climate change science.

    • Institutional frameworks of DRR & CCA.
    • Mainstreaming DRR & CCA in key development and humanitarian sectors.
    • Monitoring and Evaluation for DRR & CCA.

    What is the main training objective?

    To equip learners with skills and improve their understanding of Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation (DRR & CCA) concepts with an aim to improve the quality of DRR & CCA programming so that development actions can ultimately lead to increased communities resilience to common hazards such as droughts, floods etc.

    What learning approach and language will be used in the training?

    The entire training will be facilitated in English. French translation of the session will be provided if needed.

    An appropriate combination of various adult-learning facilitation paradigms will be used including exploratory learning, group discussions, plenary brainstorming, facilitator’s input, case studies and video documentaries among others.

    Research is a core area in development and humanitarian programming. Some of the research activities normally undertaken by various programs to promote evidence-based planning include assessments, surveys and evaluations. These activities employ qualitative and quantitative research methodologies. Qualitative research aims at generating an in-depth understanding of a specific program activity or event, rather than surface description of a large sample of a population. On the other hand, quantitative research focuses on gathering, analyzing and presenting numerical data and generalizing it across groups of people to explain a particular phenomenon.

    Given the great significance of research in development and humanitarian work, IDEAL Public Health and Development Consultancy (IPHDC) has planned a five-day training on Qualitative and Quantitative Research Methodologies. The training aims at equipping participants with current knowledge, skills and best practices to improve the quality of their overall programming.

    Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) related diseases contribute to high mortality and morbidity rates in emergency and post-emergency situations. Even in the absence of an emergency, diarrhoea kills over 30,000 children per week worldwide. During protracted war and conflict in particular diarrhoeal diseases can often kill more people than the conflict itself.

    Hygiene and Sanitation promotion is the centerpiece to a successful WASH intervention in emergency contexts. Effective hygiene and sanitation promotion is based on dialogue and interaction with affected communities; working in partnership with them forms the basis for successful and accountable programming.

    Better emergency response in public health is achieved through better preparedness. Such preparedness is the result of targeted capacity building and knowledge development by governments, humanitarian agencies, local and civil society organizations, communities and individuals to anticipate and respond effectively towards the emergency. It is upon this premise that IDEAL Public Health and Development Consultancy (IPHDC) has organized a training to build the capacity of key humanitarian actors on effective hygiene and sanitation promotion in emergencies

    • Hygiene and sanitation promotion approaches and methods in emergency settings,
    • Distribution of WASH-related NFIs,
    • Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation of hygiene and sanitation promotion in emergencies,
    • Practical facilitation skills through in-house simulation activities and field activities.

    What are the main training objectives?

    The following objectives are planned to be achieved by the end of the training:

    1. To build the capacity of trainees to impart knowledge to communities in emergency situations on prevention of diarrhoeal diseases and other WASH-related diseases;
    2. To equip trainees with practical skills for planning, monitoring and evaluation of hygiene and sanitation situation in emergency contexts;

    Drinking water comes from a variety of sources including public water systems, private wells, or bottled water. Ensuring safe and healthy drinking water may be as simple as turning on the tap from a regulated public water supply system. Other water sources may require some form of treatment before drinking for example the use of water filter, a check on water fluoridation, or an inspection to ensure a septic tank is not too close to a private well. It is important to know where drinking water comes from, how it has been treated, and if it is safe to drink.

    Water Safety Planning (WSP) is a risk-based systematic approach for protecting the quality of public drinking water. The WHO fourth edition of Guidelines on Drinking Water Quality (WHO, 2011) explicitly states the importance of Water Safety Planning. The Bonn Charter (IWA, 2004) advocates for the use of Water Safety Planning as the best way of ensuring safe drinking water.

    Water Safety Plans are now being adopted worldwide, but they are not fully understood by all stakeholders. Face-to-face training is therefore considered to be an essential component of globally successful WSP implementation. It is upon this premise that IDEAL Public Health and Development Consultancy (IPHDC) has planned a five-day training course aimed at equipping stakeholders with knowledge and skills on Water Safety Plans for drinking water supply systems.

    Who should attend this training?

    The training is aimed at all individuals involved in the management of drinking water (in urban, rural and humanitarian contexts) including operational staff of water supply systems, officers from government agencies, community water supply managers and NGO project staff.

    What are the key aspects of the training?

    • Understand how to assemble team for WSP;
    • Describe the water supply system;
    • Identify the hazards and assess the risks;
    • Determine and validate control measures;
    • Develop, implement and maintain the water safety plan;
    • Define monitoring of control measures;
    • Verify effectiveness of WSP;
    • Prepare management procedures;
    • Develop supporting programmes;
    • Plan and carry out periodic WSP reviews;
    • Revise WSP following incident;
    • Integrate WSP and Climate Change.

    What are the main training objectives?

    The following objectives are planned to be achieved by the end of the training:

    • To equip participants with knowledge and skills for developing and implementing effective water safety plans (WSPs) for water supply systems and integrate Climate Change in their plans.
    • To promote the adoption of Water Safety Planning as a tool for ensuring water quality compliance in the public health context.

    What learning approach and language will be used in the training?

    A combination of various adult-learning facilitation paradigms will be used including exploratory learning, group discussions, plenary brainstorming, facilitator’s input, field visits, case studies and video documentaries among others. The entire training will be facilitated in English. However, if need be, French translation will be provided.

    Each year, a lot of resources are spent trying to modify human behaviour. While some intervention strategies are successful, many fall short of their intended goals. Research shows that those interventions most likely to achieve desired outcomes are based on a clear understanding of the targeted health behaviours and the environmental context in which they occur. Behaviour Change Communication (BCC) has been successfully used by various health promotion programs to improve the well being of target populations. It is a systematic and well planned process that motivate people to adopt and sustain health promoting behaviours and lifestyles.

    IDEAL Public Health and Development Consultancy (IPHDC), has planned a five-day training aimed at improving the capacity of service providers, planners and decision makers of health-oriented programs to establish responsive Behaviour Change Communication (BCC) programs.

    Project Cycle Management (PCM) is the process of effectively planning and managing projects, programmes and organizations. It is used widely in the development sector. Development projects sometimes fail because they are badly planned and do not take into account some important factors, particularly the needs and views of stakeholders. PCM ensures that all aspects of projects are considered carefully especially at the formulation stage. A central value of the PCM method is that aspects of the project are reconsidered throughout the project cycle to ensure that any changes which have occurred are included in the project design. As a result, projects are more likely to be successful and sustainable.

    PCM involves a set of planning tools which feed into the logical framework (commonly known as a log frame). The log frame is a matrix which gives a snapshot of the key elements of the project. Some donors now expect log frames to be submitted alongside project proposals. Log frames can seem quite complex to many people. Most organizations find it difficult to fundraise for their projects. This training will therefore serve to demonstrate the process of developing log frames and theories of change in order to increase the ability of organizations to access such funding. The training will also furnish trainees with practical project management skills in all the key phases of a project.

    By the end of the training, trainees will be able to understand how to manage the activities of a project throughout the identification, formulation, planning and implementation cycle.

    Who should attend this training?
    Programme staff of humanitarian and development agencies including project managers, officers and assistants.

    What are the key aspects of the training?

    • Introduction to Project Cycle Management (PCM);
    • Key components of a project;
    • Significant steps in project planning (needs assessment, problem analysis, objective setting and stakeholder analysis);
    • The logical framework approach (LFA);
    • Theory of change (ToC);
    • Human resource management & development in projects;
    • Sustainability mechanisms in development projects.

    What are the main training objectives?
    The following objectives are planned to be achieved by the end of the training:

    • To equip trainees with knowledge, skills and practices on project cycle management including programming, identification, formulation, financing, implementation, monitoring and evaluation;
    • To introduce trainees to project management tools such as the Logical Framework Approach (LFA) as well as participatory approaches commonly used in projects;
    • To strengthen participants competency in effective project management.

    What learning approach and language will be used in the training?
    A mixture of various adult-learning facilitation paradigms will be used including exploratory learning, group discussions, plenary brainstorming, facilitator’s input, case studies and video documentaries among others.
