The Collaborative Leadership Programme (CLP) is a direct answer to the need to address the critical structural challenges and capacity gaps that persist in responses to Internal Displacement situations.
Recognizing that no actor alone has all the tools and expertise to effectively respond to Internal Displacement, the programme teaches the skills needed to ensure more collaborative and integrated data processes that contribute to more coherent and nationally owned ecosystems. It equips governments and actors across the humanitarian, development, and peace nexus to translate the shared evidence base into more coordinated action.
It builds on JIPS’ expertise of treating collaboration as a skill, showcasing its added value as well as teaching it – drawing on 14+ years of experience working in diverse displacement contexts and supporting collaborative data efforts in more than 50 countries.
Expanding on JIPS’ former Profiling Coordination Training, run successfully since 2012, Course 1 of the CLP “The Fundamentals of Transforming Displacement Data into Action for Solutions” equips participants with the foundational skills to jointly generate, analyze, and use data on Internal Displacement, including the implementation of global standards and guidance on Durable Solutions and IDP statistics.
This year’s course is specifically designed to improve the availability and quality of displacement data within the East and Horn of Africa region. The training also extends to Nigeria and Burundi, where JIPS has ongoing and confirmed country support exercises respectively. Focusing on the importance of supporting government actors as the main duty bearers of responses to Internal Displacement, the course is organized in partnership with the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) Secretariat.
The CLP 2023 course is a hybrid training that combines a 6-week e-learning phase from the 22nd of May to the 30th of June and a 3-day live workshop from the 4th to the 6th of July, taking place in Nairobi, Kenya. It is a unique opportunity for experienced national and regional actors to build leadership and technical capacities relevant for and beyond displacement data processes. It is not only a training to learn but also to exchange ideas, solve challenges, initiate projects and build new partnerships, while having direct access to JIPS’ technical support.
The training will provide space for 35 participants, with 21 participants identified and selected by the IGAD secretariat, and 14 participants selected by JIPS through an open call for applications (more details on the eligibility criteria in the FAQ below). To apply to the training, fill out the application form no later than Friday 12th of May 2023.
