Episode 5 – Building trust at field level: The national perspective
In this episode of the Humanitarian Incidents podcast we speak to Nour Kossaibany, security lead at the International Rescue Committee.
Nour explains why keeping national staff and local partner staff safe is critical for organisations and effective programme delivery. She discusses how security risk management and incident information can support this goal.
Nour works with IRC in Lebanon, where she is from, and where part of her job is humanitarian negotiation mainly to ease access and maintain safer programming. She has two degrees: one in Political Sciences and one in Economics. She is currently pursuing a distance learning masters at SOAS-University of London in Global Diplomacy with emphasis on the MENA region. She has five years of experience with different INGOs in Lebanon (IMC, Oxfam GB, CARE).
