The head of International Cooperation projects at Fundación Magtel, Rocío Ciero, has addressed the flow of migration and responses to it in Spain
The members of the Erasmus+ project “KA2 – Cooperation for innovation and exchange of good practice”, also called “InovHumRe have held a new meeting in Ankara, Turkey. In addition to the head of International Cooperation projects at Fundación Magtel, Rocío Ciero representatives of the teams from Brazil, Colombia, Italy, Ireland, Mexico, Portugal and Turkey also attended.
The flow of migrants to Spain, the response by NGOs, and their experience with the group, as well as the application of digital tools in these intervention processes, were the main topics that the Magtel Foundation team discussed in its presentation.
In particular, they detailed the differences between organisations that operate in Spain and have an international and/or national scope of action, as opposed to those that, due to their capacity, work on a smaller scale. “The specialisation and diversification of tasks is markedly different,” he stated.
During the different interventions, the limits and potential of participation in the evaluation of emergency humanitarian action (EHA), the design and implementation of digital strategies and tools, and the integration of a new participatory evaluation methodology in the intervention of such assistance processes have been discussed.
The different presentations provided an opportunity for in-depth discussion and debate on the main experiences of emergency humanitarian aid and care for refugees, as well as digitalisation in the NGOs of the countries participating in the project, and the analysis of some tools such as the photo-reporting, co-design and digital resources.
This project aims to increase the quality and effectiveness of humanitarian action by improving the training of students and professionals in this field. To this end, a study manual on participatory evaluation in emergency humanitarian aid and/or care for refugees is being developed, together with a list of digital tools for its application.
