Security Incident Information Management: Coaching
Mon, 1 May 2017, 19:00 – Wed, 1 Aug 2018, 22:00 BST
By pooling together security incident data from international and local NGOs working in areas of risk around the world, humanitarian staff will have a greater access to collective information on security threats and incidents in areas they are delivering programmes. The value added of this project will be analysis of trends rather than access to individual event descriptions. This trend analysis will be accessible through the Security in Numbers Database.
This will be complimented by providing coaching to key INGO security focal points on how to collect, share and communicate relevant data on security incidents and understanding their significance within a wider security context. This will result in an increased understanding of security threats amongst humanitarians working in environments with high or medium levels of risk, as a result enabling them to deliver more effective responses to emergencies.
The coaching will based on four dimensions
Dimension 1: To inform immediate reaction and response to a security incident
Dimension 2: To implement lessons learned after a security incident for follow-up action
Dimension 3: To inform strategic decision-making in the organization
Dimension 4: To understand the NGO humanitarian security context
These four dimensions are illustrated in more detail here and will form the basis of the coaching.
Twenty four organisations will be selected through the application process in which they demonstrate the need for support through coaching in implementing lessons and best practice approaches encouraged in the Security Incident Information Management Guidance. Supplementary information and resources will be provided by the RedR UK coach for these coaching sessions based on needs identified in each session.
Please note that this is a first phase application process to register interest and better understand the support needs of each organisation and facilitate the identification of suitable coaches as early as possible.
The Security Incident Information Guidance handbook will be launched in May, organisations will then be required to demonstrate a need for support in implementing lessons learnt and approaches encouraged in the SIIM guidance handbook which will be made available to the sector for free.
