About this Wiki

What is (and what is not) the Quality and Accountability Wiki?
  • This Quality & Accountability (Q&A) Wiki is mainly a navigation tool and is designed as an easy-to-use and accessible hub for key information related to quality and accountability at CARE.
  • The Q&A Wiki is not designed to be a library or archive. An extensive reference library is available on the CARE Emergency Toolkit (CET) for CARE-specific resources or the Emergency Capacity Building Project (ECB Connect) website for materials that are also relevant for other humanitarian agencies. Links to these (and other relevant) sites have been inserted to facilitate access.
  • What content is available on the Q&A Wiki is a minimal set of current best practice examples of policies and tools (guidelines, checklists, etc.) to facilitate the work of Standing Team of quality and accountability specialists and other interested staff members in CARE. Content will be replaced when updates become available or if another example is judged to provide a more useful example of good practice.
  • A collaborative space for CARE staff to share experiences, ask questions and engage in discussions related to Q&A.

Who is the primary target audience for this Wiki?
  • Standing Team members, sector specialists and all those who are involved in quality and accountability at the country and headquarters levels.
  • However, others seeking information about CARE's approaches and learning about Quality and Accountability are also very welcome to browse!

Why a Wiki?
  • Wikis allow for easy collaboration and discussion.
  • They are faster and easier to access than some other information portals used by CARE.
  • Other CARE wikis like the Program Quality and Digital Library (PQDL) and the P-shift wiki are successful: They provide a hub for information, facilitate online collaboration and are used by their target audiences.
  • This Wiki will join a growing community of interconnected CARE Wikis.
