The Minimum Standards for Protection Mainstreaming are a set of international standards designed to provide practical assistance to humanitarian actors to mainstream protection in the assessment, design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of humanitarian programmes, projects and activities. All humanitarian actors are expected to mainstream protection in their humanitarian assistance activities as a component of a broader commitment to quality and accountability in humanitarian response. Protection mainstreaming refers to incorporating protection principles in humanitarian response.

The Minimum Standards for Protection Mainstreaming provide agencies with concrete guidance on how to operationalise these four protection principles through a set of minimum standards, key actions, indicators and guidance notes for humanitarian actors.
