On January 25-28, the Phase 3 – Leave no one behind! teams from Germany, Somalia, Somaliland, South Sudan, and Uganda all gathered in Nairobi, Kenya to facilitate a workshop, bringing together all HI pilot countries face-to-face for the first time since the launch of Phase 3.
The aim of the workshop was to discuss the current global developments on inclusive humanitarian action, develop our own capacities to deliver high quality and contextualized trainings for humanitarians on disability inclusion, and to build a common understanding on ways forward to provide technical support in our pilot countries.
The workshop provided a fruitful forum for mutual learning, sharing of practices, and deepening understanding of our innovative RAAL (Review, Adapt, Action and Learning) laboratory method.
All teams walked away with a greater understanding of how to improve upon Phases 1 and 2 in order to strengthen disability inclusion in today’s humanitarian landscape, having discussed our key challenges in previous phases as well as learning points to build on as we move forward. The project teams left the training with a renewed motivation to operationalize the IASC guidelines in each country and the tools necessary to put them into action.
