Protection Working Group - Jordan

The Inter-Agency Protection Strategy developed by UNHCR and its partners is centred on (i) ensuring access to basic rights, including the right to seek asylum and timely access to registration and documentation as a prerequisite for proper protection delivery; (ii) expanding community outreach and development of community-based protection mechanisms, with a focus on community empowerment and self-reliance, and ensuring that women, girls, boys and men are engaged in the planning, implementation and evaluation of services; (iii) mitigating and reducing the risks and consequences of SGBV, while improving the quality of multi-sectoral response services, as well as expanding access and reach of services; (iv) ensuring that emergency child protection interventions are strengthened and harmonized; and (v) exploring third country resettlement/durable solution options as a protection response to cases with special needs. In 2014, the Protection Sector will prioritize interventions that swiftly and substantially increase the level of support available to the Government of Jordan and communities hosting refugees, thereby mitigating the socio-economic pressures generated by the refugee influx. The Protection Sector will also work with other humanitarian response sectors in order to mainstream protection into the refugee response, including through the strengthening of area-based protection coordination and referral mechanisms.
