Managing Projects

Effective responses to complex emergencies require exceptional project management skills.  Being able to deliver quality outputs on time and under pressure is crucial to any humanitarian response. Even under the most extreme pressure, the quality of project management cannot be allowed to slip. 

This three-day course identifies the key project management skills required by humanitarian workers and equips participants with the tools and techniques for managing projects more successfully in emergencies.

  • Identify resource management techniques for the critical stages of an emergency
  • List the financial risks in the critical stages of an emergency and identify their potential impact and how to manage them
  • State the purpose and principles of effective monitoring and evaluation and create useful reports
