Global Protection Forum 2023 Concept Note

Each year, the Global Protection Cluster (GPC), including its Areas of Responsibility and its Strategic Advisory Group, organizes a Global Protection Forum with partners and field coordinators to review emerging challenges, learnings, and opportunities in relation to the protection of communities affected by conflict and disaster. The Forum is dedicated to the broader constituency of the GPC and designed to foster dialogue on current protection priorities, discuss emerging issues and present new evidence and good practices on a chosen theme across Protection Cluster operations. The Forum, taking place this year from 23rd October to 2nd November, will include an opening ceremony and six core events of 90 minutes. Simultaneous interpretation (French, Spanish, Arabic) will be available, and all sessions will enable interactive online participation.
