As the Security Risk Analyst for Coffey’s international development business in Europe, I have assisted the Health, Safety, Security and Environment team in designing our security posture in high risk project locations such as Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, South Sudan, Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
I am continually collaborating with our project risk managers, bid teams as well as in-country advisers to assist in the delivery of projects in the most hostile environments.
Coffey has allowed me to grow professionally and to contribute to the delivery of successful projects across a wide range of sectors.
The Nigerian presidential elections in March 2015 provided an interesting look at the progress of democracy in the largest economy in Africa. How did Coffey assure the safety of its project team during this time?
In May and June of 2014, Kenya appeared in the international media on a regular basis due to insurgent attacks in the country. Why are insurgent groups targeting Kenya? And what does this violence mean for development?
