- Designing, facilitating and evaluating CB-PSS sessions.
- Codes of conduct and ethical guidelines.
Phase III: Identification of people in need by trained OVs in targeted communities.
Phase IV: Group Participatory Assessment (PA) Sessions targeting identified affected persons with the aim of learning about their needs, resources, gaps, and developing the main objectives that need to be addressed under the CB-PSS program.
Phase V: Needs’ assessments and registration of affected persons.
Phase VI: Formation of CB-PSS groups (consisting of 10 to 15 participants each); based on age, gender, vulnerabilities, culture, geographical area and needs.
