The closed donor led session on improving staff safety, which will be chaired by The Directorate General of the European Commission for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (DG ECHO), will be an open and frank discussion around a number of questions, which concerns all donors in the humanitarian field: How can the leading donors ensure security risk management is not “just” nice to have? What does risk sharing mean to a donor, what does it mean to a beneficiary? Can or should donors insist on certain standards in terms of security risk management? Reporting on security incidents has improved over time, can donors also help improving reporting on spending on security risk management (safety and security in general)? Is there a forum where all stakeholders can help turn best practices into standards?

DG ECHO will invite a number of participants to prepare a short presentation on some of these topics.

If you are a donor and interested in joining this session, please contact Megan at gisf-info@gisf.ngo and Nora at nora.berger-kern@ec-europa.eu
