SIIM for Programme Managers


Security-related incidents put the lives of aid workers and aid recipients at risk in addition to disrupting the flow of assistance to disaster-affected populations. When security incident information from international and local NGOs is pooled together, we can leverage this information to analyse trends that inform programme decision making, guide access strategies and support internal and external advocacy. Incident information can also be used to provide an evidence base for funding strategies and project cycle planning to support programme management decisions.

Objectives of the training:

It is anticipated that participants who successfully complete the training will be able to:

Identify how incident information and analysis can be an enabler (and an inhibitor, if incorrectly used) of effective programming
Identify and contrast sources of incident information in terms of accessibility, validity and value
Examine how incident information and analysis can be utilised in different project stages of the project cycle (e.g. preparedness, assessment, bid/programme design, inception and access, implementation, monitoring, evaluation).
Compare security incident information and analysis against organisational risk thresholds
Identify how security incident information and analysis can inform strategic decision making.

Participants will also be able to:

Use tools and mechanisms to analyse data, spot trends and ultimately inform successful programme delivery
Promote good incident information management to leverage organisational buy-in for programme design initiatives and encourage funding for security activities
Recognise how the analysis of incident trends can be used to minimise programme disruption
Identify how incident information management can be applied to guide access discussions with donors
Demonstrate their learning by applying the principles of information management and SIIM tools to a case study in a group activity.

Learning methods:

This 3-hour training will be split into three 45 minute sessions, with a 15-30 minute break between sessions 1 and 2. This format encourages participants to reflect and apply their learning using tools and by taking part in a group case study exercise.

Session content, discussions, polls and multiple choice questions with group work will reinforce participant’s knowledge, skills and competencies on: collection, reporting, recording, analysis, use, and sharing of incident information.

Delivered online for maximum convenience
Participatory approach involving group work, live presentations and discussion
Training and reading material will be provided 2 weeks before the training commences
