Field Coordination Package
Welcome to the Global Protection Cluster (GPC) Field Coordination Package!
The Field Coordination Package is a one-stop shop that brings together all minimum requirements, key deliverables, tools, templates, guidance, best practices, to support Protection Clusters in fulfilling the Core Functions of a Cluster as per the IASC. It is designed both for new coordination teams, who need support with the first actions to take when joining a Cluster, as well as current coordination teams looking for more in-depth details on specific topics relevant to Protection Cluster work.
The Package is organized around two pillars: the Starter Pack, which provides a step-by-step guide when joining a Cluster/activating a new Cluster, and the Operational Footprint, structured around the Core Functions of a Cluster.
In addition, the Key Reference Documents section brings together key background documents that are important to know, including on the humanitarian coordination architecture and the Cluster system, and the GPC Field Support section provides direct access to different kind of support provided by the GPC.
