About this course

The Accountability to Affected Populations (AAP) module defines AAP and examines why it is important in humanitarian action broadly and in response to the Ukraine humanitarian crisis more specifically. It explores, in more detail, three pillars of AAP: community participations, information sharing and feedback mechanisms; including ways to put these into practice. The module provides opportunities for participates to identify actions they can take to increase accountability to the affected populations they are currently working with.

Module objectives:

By the end of the module, participants will be able to:

  • Describe some of the key considerations and attributes of accountability to affected populations (AAP).
  • Explain what community participation means and the possible barriers to participation in the context of the Ukraine humanitarian crisis response.
  • Assess potential actions to encourage community participation in their current response to the Ukraine humanitarian crisis.
  • Describe how effective communication can support accountability to affected populations.
  • Describe what feedback and response mechanisms are and how they can support accountability to affected populations.
  • Identify actions that they and their organisation can take to improve their information sharing and establish or strengthen feedback and response mechanisms in their current response to the Ukraine humanitarian crisis.

Course structure

Session 1: AAP and community participation - this session defines AAP and examines why it is important and what it entails. It focuses on one pillar of AAP: community participation. The session allows participants to consider community participation in the context of the Ukraine crisis response and identify actions to increase community participation in their current response.

Session 2: AAP, information sharing and feedback mechanisms - this session explores two pillars of AAP: information sharing and feedback mechanisms. It allows participants to consider how to effectively implement these pillars to increase their accountability to the affected populations they are currently working with.

The facilitated module uses participatory methods and it is expected that learners will participate in discussions and activities in order to deepen their understanding of the concepts that are discussed. Participants will be offered opportunities to share relevant personal experiences and reflections to benefit their own and others' learning.
