The Do No Harm approach aims to ensure that humanitarian operations and crisis situations do not cause harm to local populations. It calls on humanitarian and development actors to plan their interventions carefully and to consider the possible positive and negative impacts of the project on power dynamics, market and distribution effects, social structures, etc.
The training will address the ‘six lessons’ of Do No Harm:
1. Whenever an intervention of any sort enters a context it becomes part of the context.2. All contexts are characterized by Dividers and Connectors.3. All interventions interact with both, either making them worse or making them better.4. Actions and Behaviors have Consequences, which create impacts.5. The details of interventions matter.6. There are always Options.and introduce the RAFT-concept: Respect, Accountability, Fairness, and Transparency
Participants will be familiarised with a variety of tools (e.g., actors mapping and relationshop framework, Patterns of Resource Transfer, the RAFT Chart, etc.) which can be used to mainstream a DNH approach throughout the project cycle.
The training is open to all members of Global Responsibility.
