Event description

Description

Proposal and report writing serve important functions in humanitarian agencies and are common and necessary tasks for staff in various levels and roles throughout the organisation. Nevertheless, writing proposals and reports can be challenging. The ability of NGOs to deliver aid is dependent on their access to funds, and the quality of project proposals determines whether or not funds are ultimately received. Reports must analyze the information that is presented, draw consistent conclusions, and make sensible and practical recommendations, otherwise they risk falling short of their objective.

It is essential for the operation of humanitarian programmes that organisations have the capacity to design, write and deliver high quality project proposals and reports. This course will focus on aspects that make proposals effective and successful and will introduce participants to best practices in proposal writing and help them to develop the knowledge and skills needed to improve their efficacy in writing, presenting and defending proposals. It will also cover report writing and will equip you with skills and techniques to write clear and engaging reports that encourage the reader to take action on your recommendations.

What does the course cover?

  • Elements of proposals and reports: structure and components

  • Tools for planning and preparation

  • Formal and informal reporting

  • Identifying proposal purpose and understanding donor requirements

  • Writing skills, including language, layout, format, structure, flow and finishing

By the end of the course you will:
