Protection - An ALNAP Guide for Humanitarian Agencies
by Hugo Slim and Andrew Bonwick, 2005.
This guide offers essential advice and insights to humanitarian practitioners involved in providing safety and protecting vulnerable people in war and disaster. It provides a framework for responsibility and action which helps clarify conceptual issues and helps humanitarian field workers position themselves in relation to other actors with overlapping mandates.
A schema gives practical advice on how to think through the various elements of protection-focused programming in four clear steps: assessment; programme design; implementation; and monitoring and evaluation. The guide also outlines key principles of best practice for protection-focused humanitarian work.
This practical guide for humanitarian field workers has been extremely popular and is available from the Development Bookshop .
