Call for Offer: Consultancy for Facilitation Skills Training


Objective: To train Vietnam Red Cross staffs in facilitation skills

Location: Hanoi, Vietnam

Time Frame: 1 day training in March 2015 (date to be confirmed)


The project, Enhancing the capacities of disaster risk reduction practitioners in Viet Nam through the consolidation of best practices and lessons learnt for community based disaster risk management, vulnerability capacity assessment and disaster response mechanisms, funded by European Union humanitarian aid, supports disaster risk reduction (DRR) practitioners in Viet Nam to be better equipped and prepared to implement disaster risk management programmes.

The project is implemented by the Vietnamese Red Cross (VNRC) with support from the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the German Red Cross (GRC), and the Spanish Red Cross (SRC).

The GRC directly provides support to the VNRC for the implementation of the Result 2 of the project which can be summarised as follows: The experience and knowledge of VNRC in implementing Vulnerability and Capacity Assessment (VCA) is consolidated for replication by government staff and non-government DRR practitioners, through the evidenced based documentation of good practices including the incorporation of gender, disability and climate change adaptation approaches.

From December, 2014 up to the end of February 2015, a consultancy group with GRC support has conducted the VCA evaluation. The key findings of this evaluation has been shared and discussed in a Validation Workshop last February. The workshop pointed out that it is necessary to provide training for VNRC Master Trainers and facilitators not only on amended VCA manual but also on facilitation skills.
