New Case Study about How the People First Impact Method (P-FIM) Can Facilitate the Implementation of the CHS

In preparation for the implementation of the CHS, Johanniter wished to gain a deeper understanding of how best to engage with communities and design programmes that effectively address challenges and risks faced by communities, with a specific emphasis on the engagement of women. It selected the People First Impact Method (P-FIM) as the approach to achieve this. In this case study, Inez Kipfer-Didavi shares her experience on P-FIM exercises in Berlin, DRC and Kenya by reflecting on the CHS commitments

Johanniter P-FIM case study

P-FIM is a methodology for community engagement in humanitarian, development and peace-building action. It allows communities to identify the important changes in their lives and what these are attributable to, and reveals the wider dynamics within the life of a community. During the exercises in Berlin, DRC and Kenya, the method was successfully used to gain input from local communities on how to develop (future) programmes that are more in line with the CHS commitments.
