Understanding the wants and needs of a disaster-affected community is critical to successfully supporting that community. One of the barriers to organizations adopting robust feedback practices is that practitioners lack the knowledge, skills and tools needed to do so. To address that issue, we will develop a 1-day training on integrating feedback practices into disaster relief and deliver it through in-person workshops and webinars.

Although organizations new to and practiced in disaster recovery can benefit from adopting robust feedback practices when designing and implementing disaster response, the fact that many practitioners lack the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to do so is one of the biggest barriers to widespread adoption. This project will deliver the necessary training to 100 disaster relief practitioners, who will then bring the knowledge and tools back to their organizations.


Disaster Relief Practitioners will walk away from the interactive in-person and virtual workshops equipped with knowledge, skills, and tools they need to integrate quality feedback practices into their disaster recovery work. The workshop's focus on peer-to-peer learning and individual reflection will cement participant know-how, and our "train-the-trainer" model for the webinar will prepare participants to train other members within their organizations and sector, amplifying the impact.

Long-Term Impact

In addition to training 100 practitioners, this project will contribute to building a community of disaster relief professionals who integrate feedback practices into their work. By supporting individuals, we are also supporting their organizations' ability to collect, use and respond to constituent feedback, which will have a lasting impact on their immediate and future work, as well as serve as a strong force for increased equity in the world and getting better results for people.
