Human Development Forum Foundation (HDFF) is a registered Thai foundation (non-for- profit) based in Bangkok specialized in training and leadership capacity building as well as safety and security for international non-governmental organizations. We believe that sharing security knowledge and improving security and safety skills of the executives and security focal points/employees of (inter)national non-governmental organizations will strengthen the work of humanitarian personnel in unsafe areas, thus contributing to the overall aim of reducing human suffering and aiding development for those in need.

In a world where the role of global (I)NGOs is increasing, the chance of life threatening situations for implementing personnel of UN organizations, aid agencies and other (inter)national non-governmental organizations is on the rise. HDFF understands that these staff members run an ever-greater risk of becoming victims of violence and conflict. Humanitarian work is endangered from various factors including petty crime, politically motivated violence, and war zones. Additional threats can include terrorism, working in restricted environments and natural / man-made disasters including traffic accidents etc. Consequently, being unprepared to act in these environments can jeopardize the continuity of aid operations, prolongs the efficiency and effectiveness of helping those in need and endanger humanitarian workers well being.

Consequently YOU need an “All Hazard Approach” to develop an “Ample Risk Management” (ARM) for your organization. Against this backdrop, HDFF has developed — in the context of the UN initiated program “saving lives together” — Stay Safe: Safety and Security Training which has been successfully conducted several times with participants ranging from Iraq to Indonesia. (2011-2 Stay Safe Training overview).
