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”.

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
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.
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.

Since onset of the South Sudan crisis in December 2013, there have been 15,475 recorded cases of unaccompanied, separated and missing children across 42 counties. Out of these, 4,945 (43%) of the 11,612 unaccompanied and separated children have been reunified with their families (as at 21 May 2017). Since renewed conflict in July 2016, the caseload has increased by a significant 18% from 13,090 to 15,475 girls and boys in May 2017.

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

It is the responsibility of all humanitarian actors and the government to take measures to address Genderbased violence (GBV). This strategy provides a common understanding on the priorities, approaches and responsibilities of actors in the humanitarian response to GBV in South Sudan. It is a foundation to enhance cooperation on GBV prevention and response between humanitarian actors, the government, donors, the international community, the UN agencies and more broadly.
