Event Description

Improve your decision-making process by better managing and using incident information in your daily-work.

Security-related incidents put the lives of aid workers and aid recipients at risk in addition to disrupting the flow of assistance to disaster-affected populations. When security incident information from international and local NGOs is pooled together, we can leverage this information to analyse trends that inform programme decision making, guide access strategies and support internal and external advocacy. Incident information can also be used to provide an evidence base for funding strategies and project cycle planning to support programme management decisions.

Aim of the training:

This course aims to enable senior managers to make effective programme management decisions that are evidenced by security incident information and analysis, ultimately maintaining access to populations in need, throughout the project cycle.

Who is this training for?

This course is suitable for Programme Directors, Programme Managers and other senior staff who have direct involvement in developing, supporting and managing programmes and projects. Suitable participants will be interested in how to effectively leverage incident information and analysis to create and sustain access, at all stages of the project cycle.

Objectives of the training:

It is anticipated that participants who successfully complete the training will be able to:

  • Identify how incident information and analysis can be an enabler (and an inhibitor, if incorrectly used) of effective programming
  • Identify and contrast sources of incident information in terms of accessibility, validity and value
  • Examine how incident information and analysis can be utilised in different project stages of the project cycle (e.g. preparedness, assessment, bid/programme design, inception and access, implementation, monitoring, evaluation).
  • Compare security incident information and analysis against organisational risk thresholds
  • Identify how security incident information and analysis can inform strategic decision making.

Participants will also be able to:

  • Use tools and mechanisms to analyse data, spot trends and ultimately inform successful programme delivery
  • Promote good incident information management to leverage organisational buy-in for programme design initiatives and encourage funding for security activities
  • Recognise how the analysis of incident trends can be used to minimise programme disruption
  • Identify how incident information management can be applied to guide access discussions with donors
  • Demonstrate their learning by applying the principles of information management and SIIM tools to a case study in a group activity.

Learning methods:

This 3-hour training will be split into three 45 minute sessions, with a 15-30 minute break between sessions 1 and 2. This format encourages participants to reflect and apply their learning using tools and by taking part in a group case study exercise.

3 hours, 1pm - 4 pm on the 26 September 2018
