Security Risk Management: a basic guide for smaller NGOs
The security of personnel is one of the biggest challenges facing humanitarian and development non-governmental organisations (NGOs), large and small, as they are faced with growing insecurity, threats and violence.
This guide aims to be a simple, easy-to-use security resource to help smaller NGOs demystify security risk management. By setting out the elements of a basic security risk management framework, this guide aims to support NGOs in translating their duty of care obligations into key processes and actions that will not only enhance their national and international staff security but also improve their organisation’s reputation and credibility. Although the guide is intended to be applicable to both national and international NGOs, some elements may be more relevant to one or the other.
