About this app

The Protection Mainstreaming App (ProM) is a companion to the Global Protection Cluster Protection Mainstreaming approaches. It is based on the Global Protection Cluster Protection Mainstreaming Guidance, itself based on the following resources:

- Minimum Inter-Agency Standards for Protection Mainstreaming (WVI)
- Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (CPWG)
- Gender-Based Violence Guidelines (IASC)
- Humanitarian Charter & Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response (SPHERE)
- Minimum Standards for Education in Emergencies (INEE)
- Minimum Standards for Age and Disability Inclusion in Humanitarian Action (ADCAP)

The app is structured into four sections:

1. Guidelines: This includes all the sector guidance available by the Global Protection Cluster, structured by categories (i.e. Stage of the Project Cycle, Protection Mainstreaming Principles, Programming Sector, or Context). Example: View all recommended actions for the WASH programming sector.

2. Projects: This enables you to create your own tailored guidance or “projects” by selecting what categories or subset of categories are relevant for you. Projects created through this app can be saved and their implementation monitored. Example: View only the recommended actions for the WASH programming sector that need to be considered during project design. Projects created through the app can be shared with your team or exported in Excel or PDF format for use on your computer.

3. Resources: This enables you to access a list of context-specific resources available for your country of intervention.

4. Settings: This allows you to change the language to English, French, or Arabic, as well as access information about the App and its content.
