EnCompass worked with Oceana, the largest international advocacy organization focused on ocean conservation, as the DC-based NGO’s learning and development partner. Oceana has offices in North America, Central America, South America, Europe and Asia and experienced enormous growth from 2012-2015. Beginning in 2015, EnCompass was hired to work with Oceana leadership to develop a learning and development framework to guide on-boarding of staff and a full year of development for new staff, with the goal of creating a “One Oceana” culture throughout the growing organization.
Through the ADVANTAGE IDIQ, EnCompass was engaged by USAID to design a course on how to integrate GBV prevention into USAID programming activities. The course, Integrating Gender-Based Violence Prevention and Response across Sectors, is a blended program that engages participants at intervals over a 4-month period. The training includes virtual and face-to-face components, as well as practicum activities and a mentoring program.
As part of the program to monitor USAID activities in northern Afghanistan, EnCompass is subcontracting to MSI to provide technical assistance on gender sensitive monitoring and verification tools as well as designing and delivering training to local partners on the USAID gender policy requirements. EnCompass conducted an analysis of implementing partners’ knowledge of USAID policy and conducted a training for staff and data collectors to prepare for gender sensitive monitoring and verification processes.
Under the ADVANTAGE IDIQ, EnCompass is providing training and technical support to help integrate USAID gender policy into programs and into all elements of the program cycle for the USAID Missions in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
In 2001, UNAIDS was mandated by the United Nations General Assembly to support countries in monitoring progress in the Global AIDS Response and to report back on progress to the General Assembly. Progress has been measured against a set of 2010 and 2015 targets, based on a global monitoring framework which draws on a global indicator set.
