ECB Niger Consortium Completes Consortium Engagement Plan (CEP) Revision and Review Workshop
Published on 30 April 2012
Each of the five ECB consortia has a CEP, the function of which is to focus on collaborative activities that will:
- Bring together the expertise of each humanitarian agency in the consortia
- Save valuable resources
- Enable field-level practitioners to share learning and best practice with key humanitarian partners in their country or region.
The CEPs also enable each agency to clearly communicate field-level priorities with their head office.
The Niger event brought together participants from CARE, Catholic Relief Services, Save the Children and World Vision to review some of the challenges and successes of the past twelve months.
In one example, the agencies in attendance concluded they were keen to continue building on the success of the recent Joint Needs Assessment (JNA) process in which seven leading aid agencies called on donors to act to prevent humanitarian disaster in the region.
Proposed new CEP activities for Year 5 of the ECB Project include further training on accountability and capturing some of the lessons learned from the application of accountability tools, plus implementation of the WASH E-Learning module under development by Oxfam.
