PDF File Size: 134 KB | Download   
On 14 November 2008, OHCHR and OCHA jointly organized a protection workshop with the objectives of strengthening the protection cluster in Nepal. Response made by different actors such as the government (Women Development Office, CDO), national, international and community based NGOs (NHRC, NRCS, WOREC) and the UN during the recent flood in eastern and far western regions was discussed and analyzed. A brainstorming session on lessons learnt- good and bad aspects of protection response during the emergency- was initiated in which assessment of the (emergency) situation, coordination systems, monitoring and response mechanism were discussed. At the end of the workshop, the group came up with a number of recommendations directed at the Government of Nepal, National Institutions, UN, I/NGOs and the Protection Cluster.
