Background

Launched in 2005, ProCap aims to enhance the humanitarian system’s protection response through the deployment of Senior Protection Advisers and the delivery of inter-agency protection capacity trainings.

An external evaluation in 2007, a Strategic Review in 2009, and an external evaluation in 2011 all confirmed the continued relevance of the project.
