Open Briefing X Riskline: Travel and country risk portal for grantmakers and nonprofits

Open Briefing has partnered with Riskline to provide grantmakers and NGOs a comprehensive travel and country risk portal at exclusive nonprofit rates.


Destination reports 🌎

Harnessing the power of artificial intelligence and the expertise of experienced analysts, the heart of the portal is regularly-updated reports for more than 225 countries and territories around the world. These detailed threat assessments include an overview of the security and travel safety situation in a country, and detailed analysis of the political, terrorism, conflict, unrest, crime, natural, health, and local transport risks. The reports also include specific safety advice for female and LGBT+ travellers and those dependent on technology and communications during travel.

Country-level reports are enhanced by city safety reports for more than 250 global cities. These reports include city-specific threats and other local knowledge. Both the country- and city-level reports include easy-to-understand risk levels – from 1 Low to 5 Extreme. Reports are regularly updated based on major developments and the overall risk reassessed shortly afterwards. All reports are also reviewed and reissued annually.

Other key features of the risk portal include:

Risk maps 🗺

Country maps help users visualise high-risk areas and recent security and travel alerts, while the city maps illustrate local information and advice down to the street level.

Risk alerts ⚠️

Risk alerts provide concise reports of immediate threats in locations of interest. Each alert contains essential intelligence, practical advice, and precise geographic data about risks to safety or impacts on travel plans. Users can also choose to receive email or in-portal notifications for updates for specific countries or regions of interest.

Risk advisories 📄

Risk advisories are frequently updated and provide detailed assessments of complex local developments, ongoing security situations, and upcoming events, including political and security crises, persisting travel disruptions, and major upcoming events, such as elections.

COVID-19 risk ☣️

Detailed information on local restrictions and entry and exit requirements for 225 countries and territories plus infection risk levels for the country and any cities covered by city safety reports.

Daily Brief 🗞

Full and enterprise plans also include the Daily Brief email, which contains the most-important security and travel updates of the last 24 hours and information on critical events planned for that day.
