Centrality of Protection in Humanitarian Action 2017 Review

In 2016, the Global Protection Cluster (GPC) Operations Cell and the Protection Standby Capacity Project (ProCap) carried out a desk review of field and global protection cluster actions to promote the centrality of protection.

To build on this initiative, the GPC again sought to review global and field efforts to reinforce the centrality of protection in humanitarian action. This 2017 review aims to enhance the understanding of the range and diversity of approaches to the centrality of protection, as well as reflect on good practices, challenges and learning opportunities. The four countries selected for desk review are Iraq, Myanmar, Somalia, and the Whole of Syria response.
