Our Work

Key Projects

As well as providing open and tailor-made capacity-building services, RedR implements a range of grant-funded projects.

Many of these projects seek to benefit the humanitarian sector as a whole by building capacity at a global level.

Kenya Inter-Agency Rapid Assessment (KIRA)

The Kenya Inter-Agency Rapid Assessment (KIRA) project is working with a selected group of Government of Kenya (GoK) staff and their partners in humanitarian action at county level: UN agencies, national and international NGOs, including ECHO partners. KIRA is supporting them through the development of the skills, competencies, processes and tools they need to manage disasters in a more effective and sustainable manner when they do occur. KIRA training includes modules on disaster preparedness and contingency planning, disaster needs assessment, and climate change, food security and livelihoods.

The Urban Competency Framework

In 2018/19 RedR UK will be working in partnership with the Global Alliance for Urban Crises to develop the Urban Competency Framework; a comprehensive and adaptable set of minimum capability standards for effectively responding to urban crises.

Urban Competency Framework is produced through funding provided to the International Rescue Committee from EU Humanitarian Aid (ECHO). It is part of a wider project for the Global Alliance for Urban Crises (GAUC) entitled ‘Developing the skills to meet the needs of urban populations in crises through the alliance of urban responders.

Context Professional Development Scheme

Context - an initiative of the Start Network, led globally by Oxfam GB with the support of UK Aid - is a comprehensive, dynamic staff development programme for humanitarian organisations.
 
It aims to raise standards and quality in future humanitarian responses by building core skills as well as leadership and management capacity among humanitarian staff - especially national staff, who are increasingly at the forefront of humanitarian response.

Mission Ready: Online Security Training

Mission Ready is an interactive online training platform designed for aid workers in the field.

Mission Ready uses cutting-edge technology to enhance learning through real-time, ‘point-of-view’ (POV) video scenarios, putting aid workers in the kind of situations they are likely to face in the field. This innovative approach results in an immersive and engaging learning experience, which is essential within the current global security context.

The 21-month Security Incident Information Management (SIIM) project, funded by EU Humanitarian Aid, was launched in December 2016. The project aims to tackle these issues by bringing together RedR’s capacity-building expertise and Insecurity Insight's strong track-record in humanitarian data management.

Africa Catalyst

The Africa Catalyst project is designed to strengthen the Federation of African Engineering Organisations (FAEO), a professional engineering body in Nigeria, so that they can effectively promote the profession and increase local engineering capacity in order to help drive development in the country and region.

The project is funded by the Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) through their Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Africa Catalyst programme, which aims to strengthen professional engineering bodies in sub-Saharan Africa.
