For over a decade, UNHCR has used community-based approaches to strengthen protection. Though the term ‘community-based protection’ (CBP) is not widely-used, for humanitarian organisations the concepts and approaches are familiar. Drawing on documents, interviews with practitioners and field visits, this document sets out key lessons that have emerged in recent years during the delivery of CBP. It aims to help UNHCR staff and partners at all levels to integrate community-based approaches to protection in their humanitarian work.
