Protection

Toolkit/guidelines

This guide offers essential advice and insights to humanitarian practitioners involved in providing safety and protecting vulnerable people in war and disaster. It provides a framework for responsibility and action which helps clarify conceptual issues and helps humanitarian field workers position themselves in relation to other actors with overlapping mandates.

 A schema gives practical advice on how to think through the various elements of protection-focused programming in four clear steps: assessment; programme design; implementation; and monitoring and evaluation. The guide also outlines key principles of best practice for protection-focused humanitarian work.
