Risk Management Toolkit in relation to Counterterrorism Measures

Published Date
Risk Management Toolkit in Relation to Counterterrorism Measures. Commissioned by NRC, the toolkit forms part of the work-plans of the IASC Task Team on Principled Humanitarian Action. This toolkit builds on the 2013 NRC/OCHA Study on the Impact of Donor Counterterrorism Measures on Principled Humanitarian Action, commissioned at the IASC’s request. The study found that donor counterterrorism measures can have a negative impact on humanitarian action such as restricting funding, stalling project implementation, and leading to an increased climate of self-censorship by humanitarian actors.
