The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the Global Disaster Preparedness Center (GDPC) invite proposals for the development and implementation of an online course as per instructions specified in the Terms of Reference attached below.

The working title of the course is: Creating Localized Action-Oriented Hazard Messages: A PublicAwareness Public Education (PAPE) and the WhatNow Service Training Course. The purpose of developing a PAPE/WhatNow service e-learning course is to aid IFRC National Societies in conducting a collaborative process with partners from Government, Civil Society organizations and other subject matter experts (SMEs) for the contextualization and harmonization of action-oriented key messages based on the country’s needs. This training will aid National Societies, under the Early Warning area, specifically in the design and implementation of PAPE workshops. With contextualized messages established, the training will also address the dissemination and use of the messages with media partners through the WhatNow Service and the coordination needed between National Societies, media partners and alerting authorities to access relevant messages and swiftly broadcast them to at-risk communities.
