The Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action hosts webinars. If your role includes building the capacity of staff, partners and local actors to protect girls and boys in emergencies, it may be of interest to you!

Drawing from expertise within the sector and from external sources, the webinars aim to be informative and lively discussions on topics of our day. Most of them will focus on training approaches (e.g. case studies, distance learning, mapping); however, a few will provide updates on technical areas (e.g. sexual violence against children with disabilities; sexual violence against boys). We will keep you informed as the new sessions are announced.

The majority of webinars are in English; however, some are available in French, Spanish and Arabic. All sessions will be recorded. Below you will find upcoming and recorded webinars. Feel free to suggest new topics and speakers!

Upcoming

Developing & Implementing a Child Protection in Emergencies Learning and Development Strategy (FR): vendredi le 8 décembre / Friday December 8th 10 am (Montreal) / 3 pm (Abidjan)

The presenter, Hélène Villeneuve, will share her experiences using Alliance tools, as well as taking questions.

FR: Entre autres par manque de temps, trop souvent nos initiatives de renforcement des capacités se limitent à une série de sessions de formation éparses, n’ayant aucun lien entre elles. La prise en compte de divers types d’approches tel que les ateliers de discussion, les session de coaching et les simulations dans le cadre d’une stratégie bien conçue offre davantage de garanties à un meilleur apprentissage et une meilleure utilisation des ressources. Que vous vouliez renforcer les capacités de protection de l’enfance en urgence au sein de votre propre organisation ou plus largement au sein de la coordination inter-agences, ce webinar est fait pour vous. Hélène Villeneuve dirigera la séance. Elle vous guidera à travers les différentes phases du cycle de gestion, partagera des études de cas provenant de différents contextes et discutera les principaux défis et piste de solution en lien avec la planification, la mobilisation des ressources, la mise en œuvre et le suivi, et l’évaluation de stratégies de renforcement des capacités. Il y aura du temps pour les questions et nous mettrons à profit votre expérience. Joignez-nous pour ce webinar instructif et dynamique !

Developing & Implementing a Child Protection in Emergencies Learning and Development Strategy (ES):  Monday December 18 at 9 am (Mexico City)  / 10 am (Bogota) / 11 am (New York / Caracas)

Con demasiada frecuencia, y especialmente durante emergencias, nuestras iniciativas de fortalecimiento de capacidades se limitan a un número de sesiones de formación sueltas, sin vínculos entre ellas. Incorporando varios tipos de metodologías, tales como sesiones de discusión, sesiones de tutoría y simulaciones, dentro de una estrategia bien diseñada ofrece más garantías para un mejor aprendizaje y uso de los recursos. Si usted tiene el deseo contribuir a fortalecer las capacidades de protección de la infancia en emergencia – que sea simplemente dentro de su propia organización o, más ampliamente, en el marco de une coordinación inter-agencial – este seminario es para usted. Hélène Villeneuve estará a cargo de esta sesión. Ella lo guiará a través de las diferentes fases del ciclo de gestión, compartirá estudios de casos diversificados y discutirá los principales desafíos y soluciones respecto a la planificación, movilización de recursos, implementación, monitoreo y evaluación de estrategias de fortalecimiento y desarrollo de capacidades. Habrá tiempo para preguntas y haremos uso de su experiencia. ¡Únase a nosotros para este webinar informativo y interactivo !
