Applying Best Practices to Afghanistan: Report on an International Symposium on Monitoring and Management in Insecure Environments

Jun 18, 2014
  • Description

Humanitarian, development, and oversight organizations in Afghanistan are finding it progressively more difficult to access development and reconstruction project sites in many areas of the country due to deteriorating security conditions. As a result of the volatile security environment in Afghanistan and other conflict areas, humanitarian and development organizations are increasingly turning to remote management and monitoring approaches in order to continue providing assistance while safeguarding the security of their personnel.

The symposium was held on February 12, 2014, at the United States Institute of Peace in Washington, DC.

This report describes the symposium discussions and the major themes that emerged from those discussions, and includes three appendices.
