This is a guest blog written by Ikram Zubaydi who works for Integrity Action’s newest partner in Palestine, Palestinian Centre for Peace and Democracy (PCPD). Ikram recently attended Integrity Action’s Global Partners and Training of Trainers Workshop in Nangarkot, Nepal.
In late September 2017, Integrity Action officially launched our first operational partnership with a major donor and government, in Yerevan, Armenia.
At Integrity Action, we are very excited to be delivering training on Community Integrity Building (CIB) in a couple of weeks’ time to partners, some old and some new in Nagarkot, Nepal. Over the last year, since our last partner training in Kenya, we have had the opportunity to gather key learnings that have changed the way we train and the way we deliver our approach. It is important that as an organisation we evolve to incorporate new knowledge about how to make integrity more sustainable and more successful, even in the most challenging of contexts.
Integrity Action recently made a big step in applying its Community Integrity Building (CIB) methodology to the humanitarian sector, specifically monitoring the reconstruction of homes after the earthquake in Nepal in 2015 (read our President’s blog here).
It has been said that signing a peace agreement may be the easiest task after a conflict, building stable and durable peace being the hardest one.
Integrity Action oversees the Network for Integrity in Reconstruction (NIR), which is made up of partner NGOs from Africa, the Middle East, Central and South Asia. The NIR provides a platform for sharing lessons learnt and best practice, encouraging all network members to improve their approach. Every month we will introduce you to one of our local partners from the NIR; telling you who they are, where they work, and what it is they do.
