As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rattle the world, I would like to take a moment to re-affirm our commitment to the safety and wellbeing of our staff, clients, families, and the communities in which we live and work.
Our team is closely monitoring advice issued from both the World Health Organization and local authorities daily. We will continue to take all necessary actions to protect our employees and their families, and we will continue working with our clients to minimize the impact on their operations.
Experience has shown that when affected people have been an integral part of planning and decision-making on humanitarian and development activities, and when they know what to expect in terms of assistance, they tend to provide feedback if they are aware of interference. Diversion by armed groups, local authorities or by those linked to them is far more difficult when communities know what assistance, they should be expecting and when there are channels that allow them to provide feedback safely and reliably.
In these strange times, when simply being outside is considered a risk, knowing that frontline staff are there in the field, day and night, is an enormous source of pride for us all. It serves as a testament to the levels of courage, resolve and resilience within our ISIR Consulting family.
We're in this together and we stand ready to help during COVID-19.
We offer a wide range of services to clients in helping tackle, and address transition and development dilemmas, turning challenges into opportunities and engaging local communities to develop homegrown solutions to threats and challenges.
