The Global Interagency Security Forum (GISF) is committed to achieving sustainable access to populations in need and keeping aid workers safe.
GISF (formerly EISF) is a member-led NGO forum that drives change through our global network of over 140 member organisations. We influence good security risk management practice that works for the whole humanitarian sector, improving the security of aid workers and operations for sustainable access.
Focusing on the following sustainable development goals (SDGs)
How we work
We drive positive change in humanitarian security risk management through original research, collaboration and events. As an NGO-led forum, our work reflects the needs of over 140 member organisations. For us, 'humanitarian' describes not-for-profit activities that seek to improve lives and reduce suffering.
... and why
As an independent, NGO-led network for global security focal points, our aim is to have a positive impact on humanitarian security risk management (SRM) to keep aid workers safe and achieve sustainable access to populations in need. GISF reflects the needs of our members, SRM professionals, and the broader aid sector.
Seeking candidates mainly in
GISF is an independent NGO peer support network established in 2006 to provide a platform for global security focal points to share experiences, knowledge and learning. Since then, our membership has expanded to include development and human rights organisations as well as traditional humanitarian members.
Over the past 17 years, GISF has created a centre of excellence that gathers and disseminates good practice in security risk management to improve policy and practice.
