The Protection Standby Capacity Project (ProCap) - an inter-agency initiative created in 2005 in collaboration with the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) - seeks to build capacity of relevant actors to enhance the humanitarian protection response.

Protection Capacity Advisers support the strategic and operational humanitarian protection response for IDPs and other vulnerable populations.

ProCap’s goal is to strengthen the collaborative response between protection and non-protection mandated organisations, and supports the objectives of the Humanitarian Reform Agenda.

ProCap deploys senior personnel with proven protection expertise to field, regional and global operations and trains mid-level protection staff from Standby Partners and UN Agencies.

ProCap Advisers are an inter-agency resource deployed to the Humanitarian Coordinator, UN agencies, and integrated missions. ProCap Advisers work in humanitarian emergencies caused either by disaster or conflict, in the immediate aftermath or at a later stage, and to protracted or neglected crises. ProCap can also respond in transitional contexts.
