Settlements-Planning Workshops -- field experience and organisational capacity-building

During 2019, a partnership of IOM, MSB, NORCAP and UNHCR developed workshops and other tools, aimed at expanding the capacity of settlements-planning in the sector, and the capacities of deployable site planners. The workshops took an integrative approach, mainstreaming the key cross-cutting issues of GBV-risk mitigation, and the environment. The workshops focussed on operationality, and included one week-long field workshop in Mozambique in September 2019. Participant evaluations were highly positive, and highlighted their hope to see any future continuation of the project broadening to include a wider range and more ongoing capacity-building support for settlement planning.
