The Urban Competency Framework outlines the competencies and accompanying behaviours that underpin effective humanitarian action in urban crises. It can be used by individuals, employing organisations, professional institutes and learning providers to ensure that people involved in humanitarian action in urban crises have the competencies they need to work effectively.
It can also be used as a tool for improving collaboration between key stakeholders such as local authorities, humanitarians, built environment professionals, engineers, civil society. This is important as the specific nature, scale and complexity of urban crisesis most effectively addressed through an intersectoral approach.
Taking place in February 2019 in Amman, Jordan and London, UK the workshops are free of charge and will be a chance for participants to see the finalised Urban Competency Framework, learn how to use it, and discover how it is relevant to you and your team, from deploying staff to fostering collaboration across different actors. We hope you can join us!
