Module A6: Preparing for ‘the new normal’ is in Section (A) ‘Policy and Planning’ of our three part series ‘Keeping up with COVID-19: Essential guidance for NGO security risk management’.
Since the World Health Organisation declared a global pandemic in March 2020, many organisations have adjusted to the impact of COVID-19 on their operations and ways of working. At this stage, it is important for decision makers to reflect and regroup.
This new module provides insight into how to prepare your organisation for the continuing period of uncertainty, explores why preparing for the “new normal” is important, and summarises good practice examples, and useful resources. Options are also outlined to help organisations plan for the future in a way that is as inclusive as possible.
The module has been developed and written by Elizabeth Detwiler, based on a series of interviews conducted with a range of INGO staff. Additional input was provided by Lisa Reilly, of GISF.
