Whole of Syria protection sector: Who We Are, March 2017

Across Syria, the Protection Sector is working to improve the protection context of millions of people who face protection threats. In 2017, the protection sector aims to provide 9.7 million services to people all across Syria affected by the conflict. The protection sector welcomes new partners and actors who support programming in Syria to help those in need. The following document introduces briefly who we are and key contacts.

 The Whole of Syria response has three main operational response centers, in Amman, Damascus and Gaziantep. Damascus operations support five sub-national response centers. Between these hubs, the specialist areas of protection including child protection, GBV and Mine Action provide assistance to 227 sub-districts in Syria.

 The protection sector would welcome you to reach out to sector and hub coordinators to engage in coordination, operational and training support. The sector colleagues are also available to members and external actors to provide briefings, data analysis and visualization, and formal and informal exchange on the protection response and related advocacy. The Whole of Syria protection sector can be contacted through Jason Hepps (hepps@unhcr.org) and Capucine Maus de Rolley (capucine.mausderolley@nrc.no).
