Safety with Dignity

In November 2009, the Australian anti-poverty agency, ActionAid released the field manual called “Safety with Dignity”. 

The manual provides guidance regarding how to integrate community-based protection across humanitarian programs. It further aims to contribute to international efforts to improve the protection of individuals and communities at risk in disasters, conflicts, displacement and protracted crisis contexts.

For the manual, please click here.

Action Aid is a rights based anti-poverty agency addressing the root causes of poverty and injustice – not just the effects. The fundamental assumption is that all – rich or poor – are entitled to the same basic human rights. ActionAid works to end poverty and injustice alongside poor, excluded and vulnerable people. The agency is active in over 40 countries across Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe.
