Protection: Results-Based Protection

Results-Based Protection

Results-based protection is a problem-solving approach used to address complexity and the ever-changing environment that surrounds protection issues in humanitarian action. It's an approach which aims for results - results which are a reduction in actual risks that people face. It underscores the importance of starting from the perspective of those experiencing violence, coercion, and deliberate deprivation, and embraces aspects of systems-practice, design-thinking, and other comparable methods that emphasize iteration, adaptability, relationships, interconnectedness, and strategic collaboration to achieve protection outcomes.

Since 2012, InterAction has gathered experts and experienced practitioners to actively contribute to identification, review, validation, and use of the key elements supporting results-based approaches. The online platform for results-based protection serves as a point of reference and site for the humanitarian community to exchange experiences and share lessons about achieving protection outcomes.
