The research presented in this report concludes that the following steps are critical for aid agencies to enhance the security of their national staff:The agency formally states its commitment to the security of all staff without differentiation, and backs up its commitment with measurable resources.National staff fully participate in security management procedures, and in some cases even lead them, from the design of security plans to training, to decision-making on the main issues concerning the security of all staff.Attention to national staff security is a key element for evaluating the performance of managers and supervisors.Evacuation should not be the cardinal issue of national staff security: it is not necessarily the best solution in times of crisis, and is often not expected by national staff.The agency is transparent in its security and personnel procedures, and is clear on its expectations of national staff; this is critical to promoting the security of all staff.Agency-wide policies lay out the agency’s general security and personnel philosophy, but consistently defer to field-based practices that integrate local realities.
