Global Interagency Security Forum (GISF)

Since attacks on aid workers have been recorded, local and national NGO (L/NNGOs) aid workers worldwide have been the most exposed to security risks. As efforts to ‘localise’ aid carry on and with it, partnerships multiply, we must ensure that international NGO (INGO) and L/NNGO partners address these risks within their partnerships. This guide aims to support L/NNGOs.

This guide aims to support L/NNGOs and INGOs in the aid sector to better manage and share responsibility for security risks in partnerships. It builds on findings from GISFs previous briefing papers. Addressing key challenges identified in this research, this guide offers tools and guidance on improving partnerships’ structure and supporting better access to security risk management (SRM) resources for local NGOs in the humanitarian space, including advocacy.
