This course provides grounding in some of the challenges of working in areas affected by conflict, insecurity or disaster.
These include organisational security and staff safety, in addition to cultural sensitivity, appropriate project management techniques, Do No Harm principles and civilian protection approaches.
Standard practices are inadequate when faced with the realities of project work in hazardous and volatile areas. This training prepares individuals to be responsive, aware and adaptable when operating in challenging circumstances. It presents a holistic and evidence based approach which develops a broader skill-set to better respond to the complexities and sensitivities of such environments.
Learning materials are sourced from fieldwork and real-world scenarios. We provide case studies from the field on stakeholder and community engagement, security incidents, risk management, and civilian protection.
Who should attend?
Students and new professionals seeking to work in areas affected by conflict or disaster, in the fields of humanitarian work, NGOs, peacebuilding, protection and armed forces, engineering, logistics, healthcare, etc.
Chas Morrison has 14 years practical and academic experience in international post-conflict reconstruction and disaster response, with significant field experience in infrastructure, food security, livelihoods, disaster risk reduction, education and has particular experience of community participation and security in hazardous environments.
