Interaction and EISF NGO Safety and Security Training Project

Late in the 1990s, InterAction, along with RedR and USAID’s Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA), developed a curriculum and course materials for safety and security training course. These materials quickly became the basis of NGO security training. It has been over 16 years since the development of those materials and some of them are outdated. With funding from USAID/OFDA in 2013, InterAction in partnership with the European Interagency Security Forum (EISF), undertook a project to update existing curriculum and course materials as well as addresses gaps in current NGO security practices. This report is the product of that project. It provides a narrative on the findings from the research, an updated curriculum, and training guidance tools.
