IPIECA has developed two responsible security tools, produced in partnership with the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). The two tools are:
The tools have been developed for all extractive companies to support engagement between companies and government security forces. Before engaging or investing in new operations in a host country, companies need to assess and evaluate the risks involved. The Host Country Security Assessment Guide is aimed to assist companies in evaluating the national and regional security contexts and identify the different challenges that are likely to affect extractive operations. Complex environments pose particularly challenging security and human rights risks and require a thorough analysis of the security sector and actors.
The security of company operations in a host country depends significantly on the company’s engagement and relations with the national security sector. Therefore, it is important to establish predictable relations with key security actors early on because inappropriate or underprepared first consultations with stakeholders can have long-term negative effects on company operations. The Host Government Engagement Strategy Tool is aimed to support company representatives prepare for these first consultations and establish a strategy for the engagement and communication with security sector representatives.
