About the course:

The pre-election period in Pakistan is likely to see a substantial increase in violence across the country particularly in Baluchistan, KP and Sindh.

The security environment is deteriorating. Recently there have been attacks on security forces in Quetta, KP, and attacks at political gatherings across Pakistan. 

In preparation for the upcoming elections, RedR has been working with a number of agencies to put together a checklist of general advice for NGOs to consider when making contingency plans. 

This course can help individuals and organisations to be prepared and minimize the risks they face in emergency situations. Election Preparedness Safety & Security will give participants an understanding of the measures they can take to reduce their vulnerability to a range of potential threats during the 2013 election period in Pakistan.

This course will develop a broad understanding of the safety and security practices needed at an individual and organizational level and will ensure teams are equipped with adequate contingency planning and the skills to promote staff safety and organisational operations.

  • Risks, threats and vulnerabilities
