Case Study

Global crisis and security planning for international development

United Kingdom, Nigeria and Iraq
Services involved:
Security Strategy Development
Crisis Planning and Continuity


We were engaged by a global humanitarian consulting firm to develop their crisis and security management planning from scratch to standardise how their international humanitarian assistance and capacity development projects protected their staff and consultants overseas, particularly in hostile environments.

This included developing protocols on travel security, journey management, engaging with local communities, acceptance strategies and choosing accommodation and worksites. We also developed a clear escalation and information sharing system to help senior management understand the risk to their projects, as well as conducting crisis training and exercising.

We deployed to a number of hostile or complex locations to gather information in support of project outcomes.
