Open Briefing has published a simple travel contingency plans form.
This free resource should be completed by all NGO staff prior to foreign travel. Staff can use this simple Word template to record primary and alternative hibernation, relocation and evacuation plans. These can then be implemented in the event of a rapidly deteriorating security situation during their deployment.
Other free travel security resources from Open Briefing include the Security Risk Assessment Tool and the Personal Security Profile as well as a guide to insurance for NGOs operating in violent environments. We are also currently developing Minimum Operating Travel Security Standards (MOTSS) and a threat-level driven tool for applying them in different contexts.
