Humanitarian Operations Programme

The Humanitarian Operations Programme (HOP) covers the essential elements of setting up and running a humanitarian response. HOP provides humanitarians with a platform for a successful career, allowing you to gain theoretical knowledge and practice the skills you need to respond to the kind of emergencies you face – and skills you can then share with others.

A five-day in-country training which aims to strengthen knowledge, skills and behaviours to respond effectively and prepare to respond to emergencies. Currently running in East and Southern Africa and Central and West Africa.

A fantastic initiative that according to me every personnel working in emergency response should undertake.
