Training materials: safety and security at distribution sites?

related country: Kenya


I need training materials for managing safety and security at distribution sites.

This is for a humanitarian organisation distributing Food and Non-Food Items to displaced populations.

Many thanks for your help.

The best documentation on food distribution security is the ODI publication "general food distribution in emergencies from nutritional needs to political priorities". The title is a bit of a mouthful but the document can be downloaded from -


Thank you all for the support. I do appreciate your contributions.

Hi, I would recommend WHO pamphlets and guides and of course the redR emergency relief book : Engineering in Emergencies - a practical guide for relief workers by Jan Davis and Robert Lambert ISBN : 1 85339 222 7, which will give you some information on preferred methods. There is also the UNHCR book : Handbook for emergencies. You may be able to develop some training materials from these books.

I hope this helps, Pauline
