Enhancing security coordination and local contextual understanding to increase humanitarian access

This project aims at enhancing security coordination and local contextual understanding to increase humanitarian access to insecure locations both inside and outside of Protection of Civilian (PoC) sites. Through enhanced understanding of the context, operational threats can be better mitigated by NGOs, facilitating scale-up of programme and service delivery to the affected population in South Sudan’s Upper Nile and Unity States.

Contexto The humanitarian environment and operating conditions for both national and international NGOs continue to reflect the complex political milieu and deteriorating socio-economic conditions across the country. With the continuation of severe food insecurity, protection violations, the fragmentation of armed groups along political and ethnic lines and the proliferation of arms, the maintenance of aid corridors and neutral humanitarian spaces, in which NGOs can operate, is increasingly precarious and liable to shrinkage. The ongoing context assessment and analysis that the NGO Safety Advisors provide, serves an essential function in informing NGO decision-making – protecting NGO staff through effective risk mitigation measures.
Objetivos Enhanced security coordination, contextual understanding and humanitarian access of the insecure locations both inside and outside PoC sites to improve NGO’s access and scale up of programme and service delivery.
