Security Management Learning Programme (SMLP) Workshop

United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) | Apr-May 2009

InterWorks facilitated the 9th and 10th workshop events of the ongoing Security Management Learning Programme (SMLP) in Nairobi, Kenya from 19-24 April & 26 April-1 May 2009. The workshops were intensive, interactive and work-oriented and employed a variety of methodologies, including presentations and case studies as well as group and plenary discussions. They also included an extensive practical application of security risk management methods.

Topics covered included:

  • Current humanitarian security context: challenges and changes ahead
    UNHCR security policy and standards
  • Roles and responsibilities of managers in security management
  • Definitions and limitations of accountability
  • Security Risk Management concepts and tools: threat, vulnerability and programme assessment
  • Security Plans and planning: skills and resources
  • Balancing and integrating staff and refugee security
  • Coordination and the UN security management system
  • Minimum Operating Security Standards
  • Critical Incident Management
  • Security and welfare

For me, this training has covered the most part of our daily activities. The facilitators were excellent which allow us to understand.
