DESIGNING RELIEF PROJECTS IN CONFLICT AND DISASTER SETTINGS
Semester : Spring Number of hours : 28 Language of tuition : English
Course Description : The course will start with an introduction to the humanitarian system and interventions, as well as the environment in which relief projects are designed and implemented. Students are therefore not expected to have previous knowledge of the aid world. The course will then move on to the describing and explaining the successive steps of project cycle management : needs assessment, response analysis, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. The course will be divided between lectures and workshops to guide students to develop and submit their own humanitarian project proposal in groups. The classic tools used in the aid sector will be introduced step by step during lectures, and will be applied during workshops to a speciﬁc relief project that students will progressively design in groups. Students will be assigned to work in groups at the start of the course to design a relief project throughout the semester and submit their project proposal at the end of the course (using real world templates). Students will present and defend their project proposal to a jury at the end of the course, simulating the situation of an NGO negotiating with a donor.
