GPC Protection Mainstreaming Training Package

This training package has been developed to support fi eld-based capacity-building of United Nations and Non-Governmental Organisational personnel from all sectors in humanitarian (including protracted) emergencies – in both conflict and natural disaster contexts. It can also be used to train government actors that are involved in the design and delivery of humanitarian programs. There are three capacity-building goals. The first is that all participants understand the purpose and methods of mainstreaming protection in humanitarian emergency responses. Secondly, that they develop skills to enable them to mainstream protection. Thirdly, by demonstrating the value and importance of protection mainstreaming, participants are confident to encourage and support others to do the same. The anticipated result of these efforts is that those who participate in these workshops and sessions adopt a protection mainstreaming approach to their coordination and program design and implementation in humanitarian emergencies (both confl ict and natural disasters).
