INSSA Member Q&A Forum


As the INSSA network grows, INSSA Online has begun receiving more and more requests to get information regarding NGO safety and security questions, concerns, and points of interest.  In keeping with INSSA's mission to connect members with each other, we have created the INSSA Forum*.  So, if you have a question but don't know exactly who to ask, post it on the forum, and let the entire INSSA network help you.


Any INSSA member can ask a question(s) directly to the entire INSSA membership and hopefully get the answers they need.


Like everything in this world, there are a few rules:

  1. Any question is a valid question in this forum so long as it stays within the realm of NGO safety & security.  Want to know the name of a safe hotel in Lome, Togo? Ask away.  Need the name of a reputable medical clinic in Luang Prabang, Laos? This is the place.
  2. No "sales pitches"
  3. Any information/request/response provided on the INSSA Forum* is done so with the express consent of the individual posting the information/request/response.
  4. INSSA reserves the right to monitor Forum content and remove any materials it deems inappropriate.
