Strengthening security in high-risk areas

Forum sessions


The number of countries listed by the European Commission as ‘high risk’ has increased relatively steadily over the last years – they are 83 countries in the list as of today, against 45 in June 2012.

The aim of this session will be to discuss how security-risk management can be included in the planning and programming phases of humanitarian donors and partners as well as in the implementation of humanitarian operations.

It will also focus on the roles and responsibilities of donors, humanitarian actors and leaders to improve safety of humanitarian personnel.
