Organisational risk management in high-risk programmes: the non-medical response to the Ebola outbreak

Published: August 21, 2015 | EISF publication

Issue 64 of the Humanitarian Exchange Magazine, published by the Humanitarian Practice Network (Overseas Development Institute, ODI), focuses on the Ebola crisis in West Africa.

In their article for the magazine, EISF Executive Coordinator Lisa Reilly and EISF Researcher Raquel Vazquez Llorente look at the organisational risk management capabilities of non-medical humanitarian agencies responding to the Ebola outbreak, and how they adapted their risk management policies in a high-risk programme in a low-risk context.

Organisational risk management in high-risk programmes: the non-medical response to the Ebola outbreak, draws on interviews with four security and risk managers from non-medical aid agencies, and supporting information from the European Interagency Security Forum (EISF) working group for security managers and focal points.
