Do you want to start using MDC or GIS, but your team has never heard of either and you would therefore need training, guiding and support? Do you need help learning how to handle your geographic data? Do you want to improve the day-to-day efficiency of your teams with better data? Would you like to develop a new IM strategy, and are wondering what skills and processes you’ll need?
Adequate capacity building can take many different forms depending on the skills that your teams currently possess, the structure or the size of your organization, and what skills you want to acquire. If you want it to be useful beyond a one-off training session, it’s important to have a global capacity-building vision and strategy, to ensure that even with the high level of staff turnover in the humanitarian field, your teams can easily catch up when necessary and deploy the standard tools and processes that your organization has in mind.
