The Safe Distributions Guidelines for Reducing Risks in NFI and Food Distributions have been developed jointly by the Food, Shelter/NFI and Protection Cluster.

Non-Food Item (NFI) and Food Security actors can help reduce and mitigate protection risks to individuals and communities when conducting distributions.

Moreover, NFI and Food Security actors must act to support the most vulnerable groups and maintain accountability by involving and empowering beneficiaries in planning, implementation and monitoring.
