Acceptance International - Field-level Security Coordination Platforms

The most successful field-level security coordination platforms have been generated by the NGOs themselves. 

Often driven by extreme need, the field platforms with support from Acceptance International offer NGOs a range of additional support to their existing security management arrangements, including:

  • Convening inter-agency security meetings;
  • Providing security alerts
  • Cross checking information
  • Undertaking security incident reporting and analysis
  • Carrying out risk assessments
  • Technical assistance and advice to individual agencies
  • Crisis management
  • Providing support with contingency planning
  • Facilitating in-extremis support, for example, if an agency suffers a critical incident such as the kidnapping of staff, Acceptance International might be able to provide access to Specialist Crisis Management as well as additional analysis and support through local networks.
