Call for Learning around crisis preparedness

News Article

A Call for Learning has been announced in order to increase the sharing of knowledge across projects within the Disasters and Emergency Preparedness Programme (DEPP).

Managed by the DEPP Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning project, the Call for Learning is asking for agencies included in the DEPP to share any knowledge gained through working on the programme.

Projects are encouraged to share both Process Learning (related to processes, methodologies and modality of implementing collaborative preparedness projects) and Thematic Learning, (about what works or doesn’t work in building humanitarian capacity).

Initial submissions should be in the form of a short concept note to express your interest in contributing to the DEPP learning agenda. Knowledge will be assessed via a peer review process and selected submissions will be invited to develop their learning further. This can take any form, from case studies to videos.

And don’t forget, learning through failure can be just as valuable – if not more so – as learning through success!

The Call for Learning is part of a series of events culminating in the DEPP Learning Conference in Nairobi on 29 November to 1 December.  The conference will bring together internal and external DEPP stakeholders across all regions, and provide a space where people can reflect, share and learn from one another, it will serve as a platform for creating a stronger learning and advocacy agenda for the DEPP project going forward.

The three examples of learning that receive the highest rating by their peers will receive the “Call for Learning” award. All we ask is that you are available and prepared to present your learning either in person or remotely (or have someone who can present your learning for you) at the Learning Conference in Nairobi on 29th November – 1st December.

Submit an example of learning here, or if you don’t think your bandwidth is up to the job, download the form here!

Email if you have any technical queries, or to submit an offline form. For content queries or if you’d like to discuss submission ideas, please contact your DEPP Regional Learning Advisor.
