RESOURCES for INTERNATIONAL AID & DEVELOPMENT ORGANIZATIONS

ABOUT OUR PRACTICE

The dynamic global risk environment presents International Aid & Development Organizations (IADO) with a wide range of challenges beyond those present in the United States – volatile political environments, safety and security issues, shifting regulatory environments, unclear legal structures, natural disasters and byzantine tax laws. To successfully navigate the global risk landscape, organizations need an experienced risk management partner to help develop and maintain systems and resources tailored to their risk exposure.

AHT’s IADO Practice Group brings unrivaled experience and knowledge to support the risk management needs of organizations as they implement programs in challenging locations around the world. With IADO clients operating in over 80+ countries, AHT has proven experience supporting risk management in the world’s most challenging environments.

ANNUAL IADO RISK & INSURANCE BENCHMARKING REPORT

International Aid and Development Organizations (IADOs) have unique risk exposures and requirements, and historically, there has been a critical lack of available peer data upon which to base program decisions. Each year, we conduct our peer survey, the International Aid & Development Organization Risk and Insurance Benchmarking Survey, to help fill this gap and provide meaningful data to this community.

When a breach event occurs, time is of the essence. Having a breach response plan in place with access to the third-party resources you need can help you efficiently and cost-effectively respond to and recover from the breach.

The TechAssure eRiskHub portal, powered by NetDiligence®,  provides tools and resources to help you understand your exposures, establish a response plan and minimize the effects of a breach on your organization.

CASE STUDIES: HOW AHT REPRESENTED OUR IADO CLIENTS

ONE CLAIM, TWO POLICIES

Faced with a lawsuit from a former Chief of Party in a sub-Saharan African country, AHT helped a client navigate several policies to obtain coverage. Because the lawsuit alleged wrongful termination and the loss of personal belongings, both the Employee Practices Liability and General Liability coverages came into play. Initial reluctance by the General Liability carrier to extend coverage and resistance by both carriers to cooperate was overcome by the intervention of AHT’s Director of Claims who ultimately convinced both carriers to provide coverage.

 Result: Both carriers agreed to pay for legal costs.

STAFF FATALITY

Following the untimely and sudden death of a local national NGO team member during program activities, AHT assisted the NGO in quickly initiating a claim for death benefits. When it became clear that the insurance carrier’s designated third-party claims handler was not providing the level of service or correct coverage, AHT escalated the case to senior claims management at the carrier.

Result: Appropriate death benefit was paid to the deceased family soon after the death, helping the NGO fulfill their obligations and comply with local custom.
