PAX PoC Program annual report – 2019
This annual report covers the initial inception phase of the new PAX program, 'Amplifying voices for the Protection of Civilians: Improving standards and accountability of PoC and military operations'
This report reflects upon the first reporting period for the program, “Amplifying voices for the Protection of Civilians: Improving standards and accountability of PoC and military operations," initiated in September 2019. This marked the beginning of a new partnership between the Department of Stabilization and Humanitarian Aid (DSH) and PAX’s Protection of Civilians (PoC) team that will continue through 2023.
This is an ambitious multi-year initiative aimed at improving the status of protection for people living in conflict-affected areas. The overall desired impact of the program is that targeted interventions become more inclusive, civilian-focused, and relevant to local protection needs.
The report is divided into three components:
- A program-level summary of progress in Q4 2019
- Project reports from all 4 components of the PoC Program
- Key annexes
