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. The strategic direction of the project is reviewed regularly to ensure that it responds to changing needs and gaps within the international humanitarian response. An external evaluation in 2007, a Strategic Review in 2009, and an external evaluation in 2011 all confirmed the continued relevance of the project.

INTRODUCTION

IDMC reported 27.8 million new incidents of internal displacement worldwide in 2015. The figure, however, only includes those associated with conflict and rapid-onset disasters. It does not cover people forced from their homes by development projects and slow-onset disasters, making it a significant underestimate of the overall phenomenon.

The protection aspects of the Horn of Africa crisis, including Gender-based Violence (GBV), are acute and life-threatening. While actions have been taken to address GBV risks and support survivors, there is an urgent need to scale up existing actions, further reduce risk, and address gaps in information and programming which remain. Recent protection assessments in Kenya, Ethiopia and Somalia all show that alarming numbers of women and children among the affected populations are experiencing sexual violence and face severe threats of violence en route to and around temporary settlements.

Many of the six million girls and boys affected by the current crisis across the Horn of Africa face serious and evolving threats to their safety and well being.

The drought in the Horn of Africa, together with the conflict in Somalia, is causing critical protection risks with some 12.4 million people affected in the region. Before the onset of the drought Somalis were facing serious threats to their physical safety as a result of decades of conflict. Today, as the impact of the drought intensifies, women and children in the sub-region become even more vulnerable to physical threats and attack as they search for food, water and access to medical care. Straining to find the basic necessities of life, families risk separation.
