PHAP - GPC webinar on Coordination and Collaboration for Humanitarian protection

How can the GPC ensure it leads on coordination and overcomes identified problems in its work over the next five years?

Coordination and collaboration are critical for humanitarian protection – just as it is for an effective overall humanitarian response. Recent crises have highlighted that there remains a need to reinforce protection programming with clear leadership and further articulation of roles and responsibilities. Research has shown that effective coordination during disaster response has been lacking to the extent that it has become the expected norm. What role may the GPC have in ensuring protection programming is well-coordinated – avoiding gaps and duplication – and that responding to the needs of marginalized communities does not fall between different actors?

On 26 November, PHAP and the Global Protection Cluster (GPC) are back again with a webinar on coordination and collaboration for humanitarian protection. Join us as we discuss current weaknesses in protection coordination, and the GPC’s role over the next five years to ensure it leads on coordination and overcomes identified problems in its work. 

To help inform the discussions and provide your input on this topic to the GPC’s Strategic Framework, we encourage you to fill out a brief survey on this topic. The deadline for completing the survey is 24 November.

This session is the final webinar from the series of events to gather the views of practitioners for developing GPC’s new Strategic Framework for 2020-2024.
