ProCap aims to strengthen the collaborative response of protection agencies and non-protection mandated organisations. To do this, it deploys senior personnel with proven protection expertise at field, regional and global operations and trains mid-level protection staff from standby partners and humanitarian organisations. The Project objectives and activities are guided by the 2014-2016 ProCap Strategy.
Project Governance / Management
Who we are
The Protection Standby Capacity Project (ProCap) is an inter-agency initiative created in 2005 in collaboration with the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), which seeks to build global protection capacity and enhance the humanitarian system’s protection response.
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.

Responding to displacement and enduring protection challenges for returnees in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and FATA
Since June 2015, the government of Pakistan took a decision to return Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) to their areas of origin by November 2016. Encouraging signs, such as the de-notification of areas and provision of the unconditional cash grant to returnees, indicated the possibility for improvement of security and stability in the areas of origins.
The FDMA Protection Unit organized a two days Capacity Building Training on “Protection” in collaboration with Protection Cluster FATA/KP and funded by Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
This advocacy strategy for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) & the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) was jointly developed in collaboration with members of the Protection Cluster, Child Protection (CP) and GBV sub-clusters, and the Ageing and Disability Task Force (ADTF).
Responding to the evolving situation, in line with the Return SOPs endorsed by the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) in February 2012, and in accordance with the ‘Return Policy Framework for IDP from FATA’, endorsed by the FATA authorities in 2010, the Protection cluster agreed to conduct a series of consultations with families displaced from Orakzai Agency.
