Centrality of Protection in Humanitarian Action: GPC 2018 review

The five country case studies selected for the 2018 GPC Review (Afghanistan, South Sudan, Ukraine, Whole of Syria and Yemen) allow for more context specific reflection and highlight particular issues around accountability, shrinking humanitarian space, localisation and the humanitarian-peace-development nexus. They also highlight the need to engage in innovative ways with higher levels and an accelerated pace of forced displacement, new partnerships, coordination and humanitarian financing.  Significant shifts took place in 2018 in the humanitarian arena on these issues at the same time as changes are also happening outside the traditional system and new actors are engaging in humanitarian response.
