GISF is organising additional online workshops, each one focusing on a specific region.


These workshops are targeted at:

  • Representatives of local NGOs who have security and/or partnership responsibilities.
  • Representatives of internationalNGOs who have security and/or partnership responsibilities (acting as global or regional SFPs, and/or partnership advisors or programme directors).

Workshop participation is limited to personnel working in the respective region, including those who work on the regions remotely or from HQ.  To ensure that a wide range of organisations can benefit from the workshops, participation might initially be limited to one person from an organisation per workshop, with additional spaces granted upon availability.

We strongly encourage INGO and NGO staff who are already partners to attend the workshop together, however, individual participants are also welcome.

Please note that the workshops will be held in Spanish.
