InterAction’s Framework for Protection Risk Analysis

Earlier this year, InterAction’s Protection team began a process of redesigning its reference handouts and how it presents material to the public. In collaboration with a design team, they were able to produce an updated visual representation of the Framework for Protection Risk Analysis. The handout provides all the necessary information, and its enhanced design and explicative graphics make it easy to follow.

2022 Annual RBP Briefing Paper – Climate Change and Protection: Designing Multi-Disciplinary Pathways to Reinforce Protection and Climate Change Outcomes

The 2022 Annual RBP Briefing Paper, using a results-based approach to protection, aims to begin to identify ways that humanitarians must work to understand the links between protection risks and the impacts of climate change in settings of armed conflict. Beginning with the perspective that reducing protection risk is a priority for the humanitarian community, we ask the questions: how does climate change impact that objective? What further considerations should we make in our protection analysis and strategies that incorporate context-specific and global climate change manifestations? What kind of collaboration do we need to address these issues effectively? And in the specific context of armed conflict, how must the behavior of armed actors be addressed?

Action Against Hunger: Integrating Protection

As the humanitarian community recognizes the importance of the Centrality of Protection, there are emerging efforts underway by organizations seeking to better implement programs to achieve protection outcomes. Recently, Action Against Hunger implemented a new program, Protection Integration in Nutrition Security (PiiS), in order to foster an integrated approach to their programming, with a focus on both protection and nutrition. The program strives to increase communication between the protection and nutrition sectors, as well as provide a set of tools and resources for integrating protection into the nutrition work stream.

Measuring and Monitoring Adaptive Learning: A Landscape Review

The monitoring and evaluation of adaptive learning is an emergent field. Although there is a growing body of literature on adaptive programming more generally, there is a limited knowledge base on the monitoring and evaluation of adaptive learning interventions and their impacts. Unlike other implementation strategies or program management approaches, there are no standard metrics or monitoring and evaluation frameworks to track the integration, implementation, and effectiveness of adaptive learning in health programming. As a result, USAID has released a landscape review on measuring and monitoring adaptive learning.
