In December 2014, the Results-Based Protection Program hosted its pilot online discussion forum, Designing for Results: The top five characteristics of a protection program designed to bring about results.

The discussion revealed three characteristics of design that may contribute to protection outcomes:

  1. The Entry Point for Design: A Problem-Solving Approach
  2. Flexibility – as described in terms of structure, monitoring, funding, and internal mechanisms
  3. Designing for Contribution

The forum brought together 41 participants from 18 international NGOs working in 20 countries. Participants included members of the Results-Based Protection Learning & Steering Group (LSG), field and technical staff of LSG members, as well as identified HQ staff and program design practitioners from the broader NGO community.
