Hello as mentioned by the RedR contributor, it is not wise to give general off the fly advice about hostile environments like KP / NWFP easily. My advice for you would be the following:

  1. Speak to your local UNDSS POC : (92 51) 8255600

  2. Speak to RedR as they have an office in Islamabad that provides training in Safety/Security, Personal Safety, Driver Safety etc...

  3. Merlin is a member of the PHF: Pakistan Humanitarian Forum which has a unit that deals with safety and security very similar to how ANSO functions in Afghanistan, in so much that they analyse and disseminate safety and security reports and give general advice.

The phone number for the PHF is +92 (51) 2111614-5 and you can reach them via email on

Hope this helps you.
