An ALNAP guide for humanitarian agencies
This guide gives essential advice and insights to humanitarian practitioners who are 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 vis-a-vis other actors who have overlapping mandates. A practical schema is also presented, which gives practical advice on how to think through the various elements of protection focused programming in four clear steps: assessment; programme design; implementation: monitoring and evaluation. The guide also outlines key principles of best practice for protection-focused humanitarian work.
