Protection Risk Analysis for Effective Project Design - Nepal

Venue: Kathmandu – Nepal | Registration Deadline: December 20, 2023 | Training Date: January 7 to 9, 2024


Project owners must demonstrate evidence of their reflection upon protection risks and protection mainstreaming in their design, and what practical and measurable inputs they will ensure to reduce and mitigate risks during implementation. This needs to be done by including the key protection risks and mitigating measures needed/planned in implementing the project, and ways to monitor them. While completing the PRA, in highlighting key protection risks and mitigation measures needed/planned in implementing the project, project owners must specifically ask themselves:

  • Were women and girls an integral part of the design in terms of consultation of activities? How were the vulnerabilities/risks particular to women and girls taken into account?
  • Were older persons and persons with a disability (PWD) part of the design in terms of consultation of activities? How were the vulnerabilities/risks particular to older persons and PWDs taken into account?
  • Was the situation of communities and the dynamics of IDPs, host communities and returnees taken into consideration?
  • Describe how the project addressed GBV risk mitigation activities/interventions (referral to GBV service and/or GBV survivors part of a selection criteria);
  • What activities addressed PSEA and accountability to populations we serve? (e.g. PSEA complaint form developed for staff and beneficiaries).

Further, mitigations measures formulated during the PRA should be monitored and included in projects reports

This training provides guidance to support their Protection Risk Assessment/Analysis (“PRA”) and protection mainstreaming efforts during the design, implementation and monitoring of projects.
