Coordination & Advocacy

Staff must advocate and work with relevant actors to enhance the protective environment, avoid duplication and prevent, mitigate and respond to protection risks.

Key Actions Include:

  • Staff coordinate internally across programs to ensure protection mainstreaming is consistently included in all sectorial responses
  • Staff collaborate with existing coordination fora and share information on protection / protection mainstreaming practices
  • Staff raise unaddressed protection issues and risks with duty bearers (external stakeholders responsible for protection services)
