Tools and Guidance

Field protection clusters in new emergencies or in already existing ones often benefit from readily available tools and guidance to improve their response capacity. There has been an on-going demand for direct access to such resources especially those relating to the core cluster functions and specialized areas. On account of this field driven demand, the GPC is committed to continuously provide up-to date and relevant operational tools and guidance to field protection clusters.

For your convenience, the GPC has grouped existing resources under the following categories: Guidance from Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC Guidance), Essential Protection Tools and Guidance, Cluster Coordination Toolbox and Information and Data Management.   

Launch of the Cash and Protection page on the Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) website:


Here you can access studies, tools and other resources on cash-based interventions and GPC protection areas of responsibility, such as child protection, gender and GBV, as well as protection mainstreaming in cash-based interventions.


New resources may be shared on the page by emailing them to
