Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Response

Project Identification and Design

This module aims to enable participants to use assessment data to identify and design a project based on needs and their organisation’s capacities and mandate.

About this course

This module is part of a series of four modules on project cycle management. The four modules are:

  • Needs Assessment
  • Project Identification and Design
  • Project Planning and Implementation
  • Monitoring and Evaluation

This module explores how to use evidence collected in needs assessment, an understanding of gaps in provision and an analysis of organisational strengths to identify potential projects to implement, how to select appropriate projects and how to present these to potential donors using a logical framework.

The module is contextualised for Ukraine and its neighbouring countries receiving refugees.

The module is a live session that will take place on zoom. The session provides opportunities for learners to actively participate in the session and to apply the learning to their own context.

*Note that the module is short and is intended to provide an introduction to the topic. The key messages document that will be shared at the end of the session provides a summary of all of the key points as well as further learning that they can undertake after the module to deepen their understanding of the concepts that are introduced.
