On 12 October, the Baghdad/Erbil and Amman based CMCoord Officers, as well as representatives from the Policy Development and Studies Branch (PDSB) and ESB’s Civil Military Coordination Section (CMCS), participated in the Global Protection Cluster (GPC) Roundtable on “Civil-Military Coordination for Protection Outcomes” where they spoke about civil-military coordination from a humanitarian perspective. The event was part of the GPC discussion series on “International Humanitarian Law and the Protection of Internally Displaced”. The Roundtable provided an opportunity to jointly reflect on the reality of humanitarian response on the ground, through the lens of different actors operating in the same geographical space.
