Local perspectives on protection: Recommendations for a community based approach to protection in Humanitarian Action

Project: External Project: Local to Global Protection 4th January 2018

This leaflet sums up main lessons from a series of studies on community-based protection, by the Local to Global Protection initiative (L2GP). The aim of the leaflet is to offer humanitarian practitioners a set
of recommendations on how they can strengthen protection of people and communities-at-risk by placing locally rooted strategies and experiences at the very centre of the planning and implementation
of humanitarian action.

From the studies, nine recommendations for humanitarian action have emerged. These are presented together with a short explanation highlighting findings from the studies.  For those, who would like to know more about the individual case studies please refer to the resource list on page 22.

Thank you to Local to Global Protection for sharing this learning. The case studies mentioned above can also be found on their website.
