Lessons learnt from the ADCAP programme
This edition of the inclusion of age & disability in humanitarian action training course was jointly developed by the Age and Disability consortium, a group of seven agencies working to promote age and disability inclusive humanitarian assistance: CBM, DisasterReady.org, Handicap International, HelpAge International, IFRC, Oxford Brookes University and RedR UK.
About this handbook
Security incident information management (SIIM) is the collection, reporting, recording, analysis, sharing and use of information (including data) linked to a security incident.
Security incident information management is a key part of an organisation’s broader security risk management, which aims to support organisational security in order to ultimately improve access to populations in need.
RedR UK’s recent use of simulation in its training has demonstrated that there is a strong argument for the value of this methodology. A new learning paper aims to outline the benefits.
On the 12-14 January 2016, RedR held a pilot of the Shelter in Urban Emergencies course, delivered as part of RedR’s ‘Ready to Respond’ programme, funded by Lloyd’s Charities Trust. The course was developed for shelter practitioners with limited urban experience and addresses the social, legal, institutional and technical aspects of urban shelter response and related crosscutting issues.
Imagine your aid agency has operations in a country where homosexuality is illegal. A lesbian candidate applies for a family posting and wishes to take her civil partner with her. Where does your organisation stand? What are the legal issues around equal opportunities? What about possible safety implications?
"These volunteers are the happy faces on the beach when people are landing. They are the first thing people see of Europe - nobody can beat that."
This paper has been commissioned by RedR to identify gaps in skills, technology, and knowledge in urban humanitarian response in order to inform RedR’s project Ready to Respond which is looking to address these gaps in two specific areas:
Disaster Risk Reduction: Is it a humanitarian or development responsibility?
The safety of aid workers is integral to ensuring reliable and effective support for the 62 million people who need humanitarian assistance around the globe, RedR says ahead of World Humanitarian Day on 19 August, as the charity calls for further investment in security training for NGO field staff.
With more than 800 unarmed and neutral humanitarians killed during the last decade alone – and a fourfold rise in aid worker kidnappings since 2005 – the threat faced by the men and women working to support communities hit by natural and man-made disasters is again on the rise.
Disaster Risk Reduction: Are we doing enough?
Agencies must work harder to incorporate Disaster Risk Reduction into aid and development programmes, RedR survey finds
Agencies and NGOs need to take greater steps to incorporate ‘Disaster Risk Reduction’ into their aid and development programmes, helping to save lives and reduce the devastating impacts of natural and man-made disasters, a new RedR survey has found.
Since January 2003, 71 workers from Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO's) and UN agencies have been killed in security incidents, with 108 seriously injured.1 In Afghanistan and Iraq in particular, the hostile conflict environment has thrown up a whole host of security threats for humanitarian workers who are now becoming vulnerable soft targets.
