Protection mainstreaming in IOM crisis response

Protection Mainstreaming is the process of incorporating key protection principles in humanitarian response. IOM ensures that  do no harm, promoting non-discrimination, meaningful access, safety, dignity, participation, empowerment and accountability measures become integral part of every response to  migration crises.

The Guidance Note IN/232 [En Fr Sp Ar] on How to mainstream protection in IOM’s crisis provides a step by step approach on how to integrate protection mainstreaming principles into both crisis response planning and the various phases of the project life-cycle. See attached the available tools.

All tools are available in the three IOM official languages and Arabic. 

IOM would like to thank the United States Government, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation for their support to the development of this initiative.
