NGO Security Collaboration Guide

Published on 10 March 2022

The GISF NGO Security Collaboration Guide provides NGO security staff with advice and practical resources to support them in facilitating effective security collaboration with other organisations operating in the same context.

The guide highlights the different models and options for organisational collaboration, suggests how they can be established and maintained, and examines potential activities and support they can provide to humanitarian organisations.

GISF has developed this guide as a web-based resource. To get the most out of this resource, it should be viewed online. Please access the guide’s content by clicking on the navigation menu on the right-hand side of your browser. A basic PDF version of the guide can also be downloaded below.
