Our network of seasoned practitioners have been and continue to provide training in various key competencies an aid worker needs. Our view is that an unskilled aid worker is the worst disaster a community in disaster can encounter. No relief agency or authority can be forgiven for unleashing unskilled social workers or relief personnel on communities. Aid workers need to abide to the highest standards of professionalism and to apply the latest and best practices to hasten the recovery of communities from disasters.
CLHS builds capacities of individuals and agencies, in partnership with others, in the following, among other things:
The minimum standards have been expanded and enriched in the Sphere 2011 Edition of the Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response and aid workers need to keep abreast with the new standards. CLHS associates are certified and experienced in training both beginners and seasoned practitioners and can adapt the training to meet different time requirements of agencies/participants.
Economic recovery and financing early recovery can especially be a daunting task and the SEEP network developed useful indicators and standards that may be used to benchmark interventions aimed at economic recovery after a disaster.
