GPC GLOBAL PROTECTION FORUM 2020
The Global Protection Cluster (GPC), its Strategic Advisory Group (SAG) Members including the Areas of Responsibility (AoRs) are organising with partners and field coordinators the GPC 2020 Global Protection Forum to discuss contemporary and emerging protection challenges, review the strategic direction of the cluster, and plan activities to be undertaken at field and global level for the year to come.
This annual meeting is also a forum where field cluster coordinators discuss the evolution of operational realities, facilitate knowledge and peer to peer exchange between cluster operations, and discuss cluster operational capacities required to respond to emerging needs and field demands. The forum will provide opportunities for field coordinators, global and field operational partners, and key stakeholders to engage and exchange on a range of current thematic and technical protection related issues. Finally, the meeting is also an opportunity to showcase the work of the cluster to a wide range of partners and mobilize partnerships and resources.
The debates and exchanges of the Protection Forum will contribute to collective efforts under the GPC 2020-2024 Strategic Framework to support effective and predictable field coordination and delivery of life-saving protection services and outcomes.
