Protection Mainstreaming brief
Protection Mainstreaming is a shared responsibility of all humanitarian actors to avoid creating or exacerbating protection threats. This note aims to highlight specific issues and provide guidance for the response to Gu 2018 floods.
Rationale and Aim of the Centrality of Protection Strategy
Trapped between powerful landlords, more than 5800 IDP households have been left homeless in Mogadishu after being forcefully evicted. The net effect, in addition to gross violations of their human rights, is an outright reversal of years of incremental recovery efforts, leaving them back to square one. This loss of critical humanitarian investments, combined with the inhumane treatment of IDPs which has so far led to the suffocation of an 8‐month old infant, is particularly troubling.
The Global Protection Cluster (GPC) Protection Mainstreaming Toolkit (hereafter referred to as “Toolkit”) is designed as a companion to the GPC Protection Mainstreaming Training Package (hereafter referred to as “Training Package”). The Training Package is the starting point to understand the concept and principles of “protection mainstreaming”.
In 2018, there will be Humanitarian Response Plans in 23 countries: Afghanistan, Burundi, Chad, Cameroon, CAR, DRC, Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Haiti, Iraq, Libya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Myanmar, Pakistan, Sudan, South Sudan, Somalia, Syria, Ukraine and Yemen. The HRPs for Cameroon, Chad, CAR, DRC, Somalia, Haiti, Sudan, Nigeria (and potentially Niger and Afghanistan) will be multi-year Plans.
Deadline for Completion
Ongoing conflicts continue to give rise to serious protection challenges in northeast Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan, and Yemen. Conflicts in all four countries have created humanitarian crises of monumental proportions. They have triggered wide scale displacement, civilian casualties, and severely eroded coping mechanisms of the civilian population as well as threatened the lives of more than 20 million people.
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.
The four famines illustrate the deadly combination of on-going conflict, denial of freedom of movement, poor governance, drought and rising food prices
There is direct correlation between food scarcity and protection risks, particularly in situations of displacement
The enormity of the crisis is exposing individuals to heightened protection risks that are life threatening
NIGERIA, SOUTH SUDAN, SOMALIA, AND YEMEN ARE FACING FAMINE OR A CREDIBLE RISK OF FAMINE
