Journey management and emergency procedures planning for remote area operations – International NGO

An international NGO with a mix of international and local staff needed to deploy teams to various locations in the region.  The teams’ mission was to run road shows in rural towns and villages to educate as many people as possible in the issues that the NGO was addressing.

Movement to these remote locations presented significant security and logistical challenges for them.  Venture Risk Management was engaged by the NGO to handle the journey management and security for the road shows. We deployed a team of both Tanzanian and expatriate security specialists as well as qualified medics to provide emergency medical cover.  We also put in place emergency evacuation plans with constant review as the programme developed.

Venture Risk Management was able to ensure that the NGO successfully achieved its aims safely and efficiently for the duration of the sustained and lengthy programme.  Our involvement meant that the NGO’s employees could operate in high-risk areas reassured in the knowledge that any threat to their safety would be quickly identified and dealt with.  And management at the NGO were able to satisfy themselves that they had provided complete duty of care to their staff in a demanding and challenging environment.  Venture Risk Management has been retained to provide a range of risk management services by the same NGO.
