More and more international donors, such as the BMZ, expect the "Do No Harm approach" in project management. This principle aims to identify, avoid and cushion possible negative consequences of development cooperation at an early stage. This workshop presents the concept and the implementation in projects.

23. August 2022: (3 hours) Workshop on Do No Harm
24. August 2022: (2 hours) BMZ guidelines – Input + peer review

Time: 13:30 - 16:30 hours Indian Time (IST), 10 - 13 hours European Time (EST). Time plan finalised to suit most of the nations with different time zones.

Humanitarian aid work is filled with variety of actions and behaviours bringing rainbow of results and consequences, especially so in the neo-normalcy times.  These may arise out of either some actors playing a spoilsport or due to power inequations, authority, structural discrimination, cultural hetrogenity and a combination of these. Aid workers who are involved in transfering of variety of resources, through development initiatives, need to consider the aspects of rights as well as conflictual dyamics in the project context. Do we forecast such disruptive behaviours causing negative impacts along with our program, is the question!  This attitude of doing good without harm is to be intertwined with every stage of project cycle management designed to lay pathways of change: feasibility to sustainability(SDGs)!! 

DNH as a tool provides a common reference point to analyse assistance, assess both the impacts and the possible conflicts.  Also, prompts to identify those conflict-exacerbated impacts and alternatives while things are going badly.  This workshop on “Do No Harm” gives this opportunity to look at the broader context of disruptions and how to mitigate potential negative effects on the social fabric, the economy and the environment and more so integrate into every stages of the project cycle management.  

As the workshop language is English, it is necessary that all participants are fluent in the same.
