The United Nations Department of Safety and Security (UNDSS) in Brazil last week offered training for 47 United Nations officials, representatives of partner NGOs and other state entities from 29 November to 1 December.

The objective of Safe and Secure Approaches in Field Environments (SSAFE) is to ensure the safety of UN System personnel and enable them to cope with hazardous situations in their activities.

In its ninth edition, the training was attended by representatives of UN agencies, funds and programs, as well as partners and related entities, such as Civil Police, Military Police, Federal Police, Fire Brigade, Integrated Command Center, Secretariat of Security State, Public Security Institute (ISP), Brazilian Red Cross and International Committee of the Red Cross, military of the Joint Center for Peace Operations of Brazil (CCOPAB), as well as companies and security managers.

The course included theoretical lectures on security incident management, abductions, risk analysis, verbalization and negotiation strategies in hostile environments, personal safety, and the functioning of the UN security system.

After the first two days of theoretical classes, the participants concluded the course with an activity carried out at CCOPAB. Through simulations, students were able to put themselves in situations of risk and, thus, put into practice the lessons learned to minimize the dangerous scenario.

In addition to improving participants’ preparedness for risk, the course methodology enables different UN agencies, funds and programs to train their human resources so that they can retransmit this curriculum and train their own staff.
