Preparing for Enhanced Protection in Disaster Response (PrEPD)
When humanitarian teams respond to disasters, mainstreaming protection in preparedness and response plans is a critical element. Yet, many humanitarian and disaster risk reduction (DRR) organizations do not design and implement responses that ensure access, dignity and safety for the most marginalized people.
This 2-page overview describes an 18-month global PrEPD project launched by CRS with the support of USAID's Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance in 2021 to strengthen local capacity to integrate protection in disaster risk reduction, preparedness and response. The project will deliver a comprehensive toolkit to guide humanitarian and DRR actors to mainstream protection and accountability in disaster preparedness.
