CAS: Foundations of Humanitarian Action

The humanitarian system is highly complex and not easy for newcomers to understand. In this course you will receive an introduction to the most important basics of the humanitarian system. The central actors are introduced as well as coordination mechanisms, different forms of funding and basic standards and obligations of humanitarian aid.

Please note: Together with the course "'Basics of Humanitarian Action" this course forms the starter package in humanitarian aid. Participation in both courses is recommended. Both courses are part of the aha's certification scheme and thus are eligible for the Certificate of Advanced Studies in the area of "Foundations of Humanitarian Action". This training is scheduled for February 2022, more information will follow shortly.
