In a world where the role of global (I)NGOs is increasing, the chances of encountering life threatening situations for implementing personnel of UN organizations, aid agencies and other (inter)national non-governmental organizations is on the rise. HDFF understands that these staff members run an ever-greater risk of becoming victims of violence and conflict. Dangers in humanitarian work arise from various factors including petty crime, politically motivated violence, and war zones. Additional threats can include terrorism, working in restricted environments, and natural / man-made disasters, including traffic accidents etc.
Against this backdrop, the Human Development Forum Foundation (HDFF) has developed — in the context of the UN initiated program "saving lives together" — a series of safety and security trainings called "Stay Safe", which have been successfully conducted several times with participants working in several countries across the globe, ranging from Ghana in West Africa, to Iraq in the Middle East, to Afghanistan in Central/South Asia, to Myanmar, Thailand, Indonesia in Southeast Asia.
HDFF's 5-day Stay Safe Training for UN/(I)NGO Security Managers and Security Focal Points is a safety and security training that addresses the management and security related personnel needs of UN organizations and (inter)national non-governmental organizations. The training is conducted by experienced and culturally sensitive facilitators (also UN experienced) in an utmost participatory way.
Please note that this training is conducted in Bangkok, Thailand, and the language of instruction is English.
