Risk Thresholds in Humanitarian Assistance

This GISF Report (2011) examines how humanitarian organisations express their attitudes to risk, and considers how priorities at different organisational levels might be better integrated when decisions are made on whether to accept or reject certain risks.

Section 1 reviews the risk management process, considering roles and responsibilities at both organisational and operational levels.

Section 2 explores how organisations establish risk thresholds, and distinguishes ‘proportional risk’ from ‘security thresholds’.

Section 3 goes on to consider how an organisation’s attitude to risk can be put into practice and managed at all levels.

Section 4 concludes with reccommendations for examining and improving the risk management proces swithin humanitarian organisations.

Risk Thresholds in Humanitarian Assistance is aimed at senior management as well as security specialists.
