Abstract
In this interactive session the presenters will share a case study and lessons from the PARCEL Project; a 2 year consortium project developing materials for international NGOs to use for building the capacity of local partner organisations in humanitarian logistics. The project with co-financing from ECHO and a consortium of ten International NGOs resulted in a series of free products available to the sector, including: a set of logistics standards for INGOs and their partners to work towards, an assessment tool to jointly measure adherence to these standards, a complete set of pick-up-and-go training packages—blended learning materials—to address potential capacity gaps, including a Training of Trainers package, and finally a toolkit for partner organisation to use for their logistics systems and processes. These packages were pilot tested and implemented with partners working in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and the Caribbean. Post project, materials have been downloaded hundreds of time, and consortium members are frequently contacted by new organisations who are starting to use the products. The long-term implications of this project can result in hundreds of thousands of dollars saved through the elimination of duplication of training materials design and development efforts for new organisations who are able to pick up these materials and go!
