The Quality and Accountability COMPASS includes a series of recommendations, processes and tools that have been specifically designed to help international aid projects implement the Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS) in any sector, context or intervention zone.

The Quality and Accountability COMPASS is evolving and we are interested in your opinion

Having shared the pilot version of the Quality and Accountability COMPASS in January, and in the run up to the final version to be launched next autumn, Groupe URD is conducting an online consultation to allow anyone who is interested to share their opinion and suggest ideas. So please don’t hesitate to tell us what you think and contribute to improving the new version by answering the questionnaire here before 12 May.

 Quality and Accountability COMPASS training sessions

Groupe URD will be running two training sessions on The Quality and Accountability COMPASS: implementing the Core Humanitarian Standard in international aid projects. The first of these will be in English and will take place in Geneva (Switzerland) on 13, 14 and 15 June. The second will be in French and will be held in Paris (France) on 29, 30 and 31 October.

This training course aims to reinforce the capacity of individuals and organisations to conduct projects responsibly (1) and to meet the needs and expectations of communities and people affected by a crisis (2). It is aimed at professionals from the international aid sector who are involved in implementing, funding, monitoring or evaluating humanitarian projects, such as Heads of Project, staff in charge of monitoring funds and partnerships, staff in charge of Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation , Accountability and Learning (PMEAL), evaluators, etc.
This course will provide you with methodological grounding in quality and accountability issues, methods and tools for project implementation, funding, monitoring and evaluation.
