CMCoord Support to Protection
Guidance Note on CMCoord Support to Protection Outcomes
The Civil-Military Coordination Service (CMCS), with support from OAD/PAPS, developed a Guidance Note on CMCoord Support to Protection Outcomes. The Guidance Note describes actions which OCHA’s CMCoord Officers and Focal Points can take in contributing to protection outcomes at a country level. The Note also describes the role of OCHA’s CMCS at HQ level in supporting protection outcomes.
The areas of CMCoord Tasks in support of protection outcomes are defined as: 1) Analysis, 2) Dialogue, 3) Advocacy, 4) Capacity Building and 5) Planning and Preparedness.
