This document, developed by Catholic Relief Services, is intended to provide information for country program staff and others who work with or who are planning to work with volunteers in their programs. It is not meant to be prescriptive, but rather to be a guide which is to be adapted to local contexts.
The purpose of this tool is to obtain a quick understanding of the emergency food security and livelihood situation, within the first few days after a rapid-onset disaster. The tool is independent of other multi-sectoral assessments and collects information only on food security and livelihoods (EFSL).
This study seeks to contribute to improved humanitarian leadership by considering the factors that make humanitarian leadership successful, and identifying actions that actors within the humanitarian system can take to improve the quality of leadership in humanitarian responses.

This paper – a collaboration of the Hauser Center for Nonprofit Organizations and the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative – is an exploration of how INGOs approach the development of managers and leaders. It discusses the context, practice and lessons related to management and leadership development in a handful of large INGOs focused on humanitarian and development efforts.
The Food Security Program Capacity Index (FSPCI) is a self-assessment tool that food security programs can use to measure their knowledge of important guidance and staff capacity in key programming areas. It currently consists of 10 elements, each of which measures one of the core capacities needed to design and execute a food security program.
Collaborate with your peers to share knowledge, learn from program experience, and develop and adapt tools and materials for improved program implementation. If interested, contact email@example.com.
