SIIM Podcast: Humanitarian Incidents

The Humanitarian Incidents podcast is an ECHO funding project which looks at different aspects and perspectives of incident information and humanitarian security risk management. Each episode brings humanitarian experts from Geneva to South Sudan doing everything from research to operations. They discuss how better understanding, management and use of incident information can improve organisations’ risk management and access to crisis-affected populations.

The SIIM (Security Incident Information Management) project produced this podcast. The project builds the capacity of NGOs to undertake speedier security-related information management and sharing, thereby strengthening humanitarian response. The project is supported by the European Interagency Security Forum, Insecurity Insight and RedR UK and is funded by EU Humanitarian Aid.
