The L2GP studies explore how people living in areas affected by natural disasters and complex emergencies understand ‘protection’ – what do people value, and how do they go about protecting themselves, their families and communities?

In particular, although it is not a new report, this study on Protection in the occupied Palestinian territories underscores many of the elements of results-based protection:

  • Threats identified by communities – including the importance of a context-specific and participatory protection analysis that builds on local coping strategies and resilience.
  • Disaggregated data to understand protection threats, vulnerabilities, and capacities for populations where protection needs may vary significantly by location, age, ethnic group, gender, etc.
  • Flexible program approaches that allow for context- and target group- specific program design and can be adapted to changing dynamics of threats, vulnerabilities, and capacities
  • M&E systems that emphasize results rather than merely how activities are executed
  • Engagement from complementary/contributory efforts beyond traditional humanitarian actors to build upon and complement initiatives from relief, development, and advocacy initiatives
