About the Series:
This podcast series ’Evolving NGO Security Risk Management’, looks at the innovations, transformative developments, and dynamic trends facing the humanitarian and development sector. We have elected to explore the facets of ‘Evolving NGO SRM’, to unpack the changing environments, practices, discussions, and technical considerations impacting the safety and security of aid workers and operations. These conversations are enriched by expert guests spanning security professionals, humanitarians, and more.
In an ever-changing humanitarian and development space, we ask what does the security and safety of aid workers look like? And what might it look like in the future? Join us as we unpack the evolutions of NGO security risk management.
