The environments in which humanitarian and development organisations work are continually changing and there is a growing demand for security training on specific issues. We are aware of the differing demand, with some security and programme management professionals looking to pick and choose topics, while others want an opportunity to refresh their knowledge.
In order to meet this need, RedR will be hosting a range of one day sessions on key security issues across one week. Each component will reflect the latest thinking from within the sector and reflect the global challenges that we face in ensuring a safe environment to implement programmes.
