      3. Inform decisions about programmatic criticality by providing analysis of the risks/opportunities of both action and inaction. 
      4. Collaborate with regional Safety and Security teams and EHAU Humanitarian Access team to map key actors with influence over the IRC’s humanitarian access, with focus on Afghanistan initially.
