The Protection Monitoring System (PMS) of the Protection Cluster (PC) in South Sudan was rolled out in October 2022 with the first round of data collection based on harmonized and agreed upon methods and tools. The PMS relies on contributions by PC member organizations to collect data via a Key Informant Interview (KII) questionnaire at Payam level across twelve thematic areas thereby monitoring the occurrence of protection violations, their scale and impact on communities over time. Key informants are selected to represent a variety of backgrounds and profiles in a community. At country-level, the PMS is coordinated through the Cluster’s Protection Monitoring (PROMO) working group. The roll out of the PMS is generously supported by UNHCR and ECHO.
