About the Global Protection Cluster strategic review

GPC is developing a new Strategic Framework for 2020-2024. Extensive consultations are continuing to take place with academics, AoRs, community members, donors, experts, NGOs and other Clusters. The GPC is also trying to revitalize its structures to react better to the needs of the field and speak more forcefully for change around protection. The new GPC Strategic Framework is expected to reflect the evolution of the humanitarian response system highlighted by the work on the Centrality of Protection and the IASC Protection Policy and the need to adapt working methods to take account of changes to the UN coordination system announced by the Secretary-General in 2018; nexus discussions; climate response and new approaches to solutions.

The GPC is now partnering with the International Association of Professionals in Humanitarian Assistance and Protection (PHAP) to carry out online consultations with stakeholders globally to help shape and refine the strategy.

Target audience and event access

The event is targeted at humanitarian protection specialists and practitioners in all sectors with an interest in ensuring protection effectively functions in response to climate-related emergencies and is taken into account in preparedness work.
