Imagine your aid agency has operations in a country where homosexuality is illegal. A lesbian candidate applies for a family posting and wishes to take her civil partner with her. Where does your organisation stand? What are the legal issues around equal opportunities? What about possible safety implications?

As the world grows more urbanised, large scale disasters are increasingly impacting urban areas. The role aid agencies have and the response that they provide is changing from the more familiar role and response of the rural or camp context. Urban emergencies have a higher level of complexity than many rural or camp-focused emergencies. The kind of response required is greatly affected by the type of disaster and the different urban environments, whether huge cities, medium-sized towns, peri-urban or slum areas.

The purpose of taking this course is to introduce participants to the different concepts of protection and discuss the use of the word in humanitarian operations and explain why protection is important and to present the Four Protection Principles as mentioned in the Sphere handbook. These four basic protection principles should underpin all other humanitarian activities. In addition, protection is concerned with the safety, dignity and rights of people affected by disaster or armed conflict. Also, improve the understanding of child protection and special needs of children.
