PHAP partners with the Global Protection Cluster for strategic review consultations
Opportunity for practitioners to provide their views on critical issues facing protection in three consultation webinars – first webinar on 22 October.
The Global Protection Cluster (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.
We are happy to announce that 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. The online consultations will consist of three webinars, bringing together experts for discussions on some of the issues that have come up in the face-to-face consultations. Each of the webinars is preceded by a targeted survey to help bring in perspectives from practitioners from across the sector to inform the discussions. The preliminary survey results will be presented during the webinar and help inform the discussions and will serve as a critical input into the GPC strategic review discussions.
