As part of a review of 2016, the Global Protection Cluster (GPC) and ProCap (the Inter-Agency senior protection capacity standby project) have reviewed the objectives and progress of sample Protection Clusters/sectors worldwide. The overview provides an opportunity to gain an overall picture of national Protection Cluster objectives within a broader humanitarian response plan; understand the priorities within each response and identify what progress has been made during 2016. For each selected country, the main goals of the protection overview are to consider the:
- 2016 objectives related to protection, including the strategies from the Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) and the Protection Cluster; and
- progress made in achieving the relevant objectives including activities and initiatives were undertaken in 2016.
As well as identify initiatives and activities undertaken by each Protection Cluster, this overview will also provide examples of best practice and useful ideas for other Protection Clusters, which will be shared by the GPC.
