Germany supports humanitarian safety
Germany has awarded INSO a major new grant to support humanitarian safety in multiple crisis affect countries.

The project 'Building Global Capacity in Humanitarian Safety-Phase II' will help INSO to provide critical information, analysis, training and co-ordination services to NGO partners in Palestine, Somalia, Democratic Republic of Congo and Ukraine.

Working to help populations affected by conflict and disaster has always been, and will continue to be, a dangerous endeavour. Sadly, conflicts and attacks on humanitarian helpers have increased. As Germany focuses its humanitarian assistance on protracted and complex crises, we need to support and protect those who help. INSO provides much needed safety and security advice to our NGO partners – making humanitarian assistance possible even in extremely difficult and dangerous environments“, says Annett Günther, Deputy Director General for Humanitarian Assistance at German Federal Foreign Office.

The project will also support INSO's capacity to respond to new crisis as they emerge, develop new services and contribute to the operating costs of the organisation.

INSO’s network of field safety platforms provides daily, on-the-ground support to more than 840 humanitarian organisations across twelve high-risk countries.  

“Our services support humanitarian programming in some of the worlds most difficult places” noted Executive Director Nic LeeWe are deeply grateful for the support of the German people in this important mission.

The project is expected to run for two years and is co-funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MINBUZA) and the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID).
