The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is committed to the principle that humane and orderly migration benefits migrants and society. As the UN Migration Agency, IOM acts with its partners in the international community to assist in meeting the operational challenges of migration; advance understanding of migration issues; encourage social and economic development through migration; and uphold the human dignity and well-being of migrants.
RedR United Kingdom (UK) is an international charity that builds the knowledge and skills of individuals and organizations for more effective humanitarian action and acts to ensure disaster-prone communities are resilient by giving them practical life-saving skills, advice and support, which help them prepare for, respond to, and recover from natural and man-made disasters. Between 2010 and 2019, RedR UK improved the capacity of 57,726 humanitarian workers in 35 countries.

The authors of this guideline are Kate Denman and Leigh-Ashley Lipscomb.
