Improving the Safety of Civilians is an innovative tool that strengthens the capacity of field workers to improve civilian safety through humanitarian programs. Designed for use in difficult and sensitive field situations, the pack draws from extensive experience in real protection crises.

Each pack consists of a comprehensive training manual and CD, containing four training modules and core exercises, and templates of all resources for adaptation, together with posters and activity cards for minimal preparation.

The materials are designed for use by experienced facilitators, who have some knowledge of protection issues, to train emergency response teams. The pack introduces the ideas discussed in Protection, also published by Oxfam, using modules and exercises that can be adapted to all levels of participant knowledge.
