In 2016, the Global Protection Cluster (GPC) Operations Cell and the Protection Standby Capacity Project (ProCap) carried out a desk review of field and global protection cluster actions to promote the centrality of protection. To build on this initiative, the GPC again sought to review global and field efforts to reinforce the centrality of protection in humanitarian action. The 2017 review aimed to enhance the understanding of the range and diversity of approaches to the centrality of protection, as well as reflect on good practices, challenges and learning opportunities. The review was drafted by a ProCap Advisor and the GPC Coordinator, with substantive inputs from GPC members and was released in 2018.

The GPC therefore requires assistance to carry out the 2018 review of field and global protection cluster actions to promote the centrality of protection in humanitarian action. This activity is covered by earmarked funding from the US government.
