RPT's Risk Assessment for Syrian Journalists
Updated: January 2015
These practical templates and worksheets are designed to help Syrian journalists assess and plan for the risks that they face on assignment and on the ground.
This resource includes three downloadable templates in Arabic: a risk assessment form, a communications plan and a proof of life document. Assessing the potential risks of an assignment or situation enables journalists to better understand and prepare for them. RPT encourages all freelancers working in Syria (both local and international) to complete a risk assessment and prepare an emergency communication plan before undertaking an assignment.
