An arrest and detention situation can present unique challenges for those being held by government authorities, as well as the organizations they represent.
Organizations may face the impacts resulting from a serious disease outbreak (pandemic) which can have far reaching business and operational consequences, or if mishandled, may impact the reputation of the team. As such, it is critical that leaders understand the complexities of managing a pandemic event, including the typical modes of disease transmission and, so, infection mitigation measures, and how a disease outbreak can then affect business and operations, as well as generate secondary risks through its destabilizing effect on the local population and public health infrastructure.
Political risks present unique and potentially highly impactful organizational risks to many organizations, whether at home or when operating internationally. Political risks can impact a business license, the ability to operate, move funds, compete on work, or result in disrupting stress and tension being placed upon the organization. In some instances key staff may be arrested, detained, or made persona non grata.
Leadership teams are responsible for establishing the decision making structures needed to most effectively manage risk. Understanding the process required to identify primary and secondary stakeholders who are responsible for reviewing human-made and natural risks, and responding to a crisis situation should it occur, is a fundamental organizational mandate.
When an emergent threat is identified, and when a crisis situation is ongoing, or incident has happened, the ability to communicate quickly and accurately with the right people is fundamentally important.
In many environments, overland travel presents the single greatest domain of risk to life safety. Managing this risk requires the adoption of a systematic approach that starts with an assessment of threats posed by the road conditions, locally prevalent driving behaviors and nature and tempo of travel undertaken, and then overlays this with the spatial pattern of threats presented by hostile individuals and groups, and hazards arising in the natural environment.
Hotels, guesthouses and homes provide places for rest, recuperation and comfort, as well as venues for meetings and events. In some environments safety and security will play a role in the selection of these locations, ensuring that both direct and indirect risks are identified, measured and taken into account during the selection process. A failure to understand risks to residential and hotel or guesthouses places people, activities, assets and the reputation of an organization at avoidable risks.
The ability to offer first aid support to sick or injured individuals, especially in a remote region distanced from medical support, or where a crisis has occurred and medical first responders are unable to provide immediate support, can make the difference between a life and death situation. This training provides casualty stabilization awareness training to enable managers and staff to understand the simple techniques by which to stabilize causalities until professional medical help arrives; even when first aid assets and equipment may not be available.
The impact of long hours, insecure environments, chronic stress, and traumatic incidents affect both the physical and emotional wellbeing of humanitarian professionals. They can experience anxiety, post-traumatic stress, depression and burnout.
As a result, even the most committed and experienced of them can become unable to function at their best, meaning that crisis-affected people may not be receiving the assistance and protection that they need. Investing in humanitarian staff wellbeing and resilience has therefore become a necessity.
On 24 May, ICVA and PHAP organized the second session of the learning stream on the humanitarian-development-peace nexus, which explored the role of the World Bank when working in conflict situations and fragile contexts, and how their approach has changed since the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016. The event featured presentations from Xavier Devictor and Hannah George on the World Bank's approach in such contexts.

Many countries in Europe are now moving quickly towards establishing, developing and expanding their Barnahus or similar services. As this momentum builds, the field of knowledge and experience is growing. The PROMISE Webinar Series extends an open invitation to join the discussions and exchanges within the European Barnahus Movement. During PROMISE 1, select professionals from around Europe were invited to participate at the PROMISE project exchange meetings.
En el equipo de Alianza Heartland México, gracias al generoso apoyo de USAID, tenemos la oportunidad de compartir capacitación y acompañamiento gratuito a organizaciones de la sociedad civil, así como al sector público y privado, que estén interesadas en conocer y replicar “DHARTE: un modelo para la prevención de la violencia y la delincuencia.”

Psychological First Aid (PFA) for Children course will introduce you to the concepts and steps involved in providing support to children following a distressing event. It includes activities that focus on the core elements of PFA and how to apply them in a humanitarian context.
In crisis events, children react and think differently to adults. Ensuring that humanitarian staff and volunteers are well-equipped to provide initial support for children in an appropriate way can make a significant difference in delivering an effective emergency response.
CILT Awards in Cash Transfer Programming
For humanitarian aid agencies there is an increasing trend to develop cash transfer mechanisms to people in need rather than direct aid. While this give the recipients more freedom of choice, it is also a stimulus to maintain local supply chains.
The Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans webinar on Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) and National Adaptation Planning: Opportunities for the Agricultural Sectors will provide an overview of how EbA can be effectively integrated into agriculture sectors’ adaptation strategies and broader national adaptation planning processes. The webinar will focus on mainstreaming EbA in the formulation and implementation of National Adaptation Plans (NAPs).
