Protection Cluster - Emergency Response Model

Throughout the Syrian conflict, certain areas of the country have experienced “emergencies within the emergency,” including large scale displacement, besiegement, etc. In 2016, the Syria Protection Cluster (Turkey), together with its GBV, CP and MA Sub-Clusters, felt the need to have a standardized emergency response model to respond quickly to these events, and to organize resources on the ground in a more coordinated, effective and efficient way. The coordinators and members therefore participated in the development of the Emergency Response Model explained below, which has evolved over time and been refined based on lessons learnt. This model is activated at the discretion of the PC and SC coordinators, based on identified needs and gaps in Protection, GBV, CP and MA service provision.
