Launch event: Toolkit for principled humanitarian action

NRC launches new Toolkit for Principled Humanitarian Action in relation to Counterterrorism Risks

We are delighted to announce the launch of the Norwegian Refugee Council’s (NRC) new Toolkit for Principled Humanitarian Action: Managing Counterterrorism Risks happening this 5 June 2020.  The toolkit updates information held in the 2015 Risk Management Toolkit in Relation to Counterterrorism Measures to reflect recent developments in this area. It aims to raise awareness of counterterrorism-related risks so that organizations can identify and mitigate these, and to make risk management approaches accessible to a broad range of staff who can use these in their day to day work.

This online event will provide an opportunity for representatives of several key stakeholders to take stock of this issue, five years on from the launch of the original Toolkit.  It will allow for an exchange on the current state of the impact of counterterrorism measures on humanitarian organizations and the associated risks. What measures are humanitarian organisations taking to address these risks? What role can donors play in risk management? What are the emerging challenges and opportunities?

Event registrants will receive the link to the Toolkit as soon as it is made available.

This webinar is free to attend and all humanitarian practitioners with an interest in risk management and/or the relevance of counterterrorism regulations to humanitarian action are welcome.
