Supporting Child Protection In Conflict

Supporting Child Protection In Conflict

Research Analyst, Will Carter, has been seconded to War Child UK for four months to serve in their Programmes Team as interim Security & Logistics Officer. War Child is a prominent INGO working on child protection projects for conflict-affected children and youth. War Child currently has programmes in Afghanistan, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iraq and Uganda.

The secondment sees Will primarily supporting multi-country security management in a period where War Child has prioritised mainstreaming NGO security best practice and procedures.

In his first month, in addition to routine security requirements, such as delivering pre-deployment briefings and conducting risk assessments, Will has conducted an internal security audit, drafted a safety and security training strategy, designed a deployments management system and undergone a professional certificate course in NGO security management.

In the coming months it is anticipated that he will be significantly updating security plans for War Child’s country programmes, to reflect exciting new and future projects. He will also be consolidating and standardising a multi-country asset registry and initiating an annual audit cycle, as well as producing donor compliance guidance for procurement. War Child are evaluating the merits of Will being deployed to a country programme during the secondment in order to directly support their security planning, procedures and training.
