RISK ASSESMENT AND RISK MANAGEMENT POLICIES: We have developed detailed plans to assess the risks of the contexts where we operate, taking into consideration both common and exceptional emergency situations. Through an analysis, we prepared the codes of conduct that every representative is asked to follow carefully, both inside and outside our facilities.
We offer training courses and each month we update our guidelines in normal situations. During emergencies, we escalate, review and modify according to the risks that are noted.

INTEGRATION WITH THE LOCAL COMMUNITY: Building strong relationships with the local community is a top investment. We work hard to involve the hosting local community. We communicate with the local authorities and we hire local staff. These relationships are the basis of our operations and create a safe and protected space to run our activities, even during emergency or critical situations.

WE TAKE PART IN INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION: Our operations on the ground are always communicated and updated to the embassies and consulates of the State where we implement our programs. We follow through official channels the evolution of critical situations and we activate protocols of protection and/or evacuation according to their indications. Every international representative is trained on the applied guidelines. They are always supported in keeping in touch with their embassies, to collect information and guidelines regarding emergency situations.
