Australian Red Cross

Context – Australian humanitarian actors are required to ensure that protection is well-mainstreamed into all response operations. In 2013 the Australian Red Cross (ARC) determined there was inadequate training and support on protection mainstreaming and invited Humanitarian Advisory Group to work with them to address this gap.

Support provided – Humanitarian Advisory Group developed a training package on protection mainstreaming detailing key learning outcomes and session plans, as well as developing all the materials that were needed to deliver the training. Since 2013 Humanitarian Advisory Group has been delivering the training with ARC to humanitarians to develop their skills and capacities to ensure protection is effectively mainstreamed in their programs.

Outcome – A training package for ARC that is delivered across NSW and VIC.


University of Melbourne

Humanitarian Advisory Group partners with the Master of Development Studies program at the University of Melbourne to deliver professional practice seminar series and industry engagement events for student and the wider sector. The team has facilitated seminars on private sector engagement in development, careers for postgraduate students and the response to Tropical Cyclone Winston, as well as a full day workshop on the promise and challenges for the SDGs, bringing together practitioners, students and staff.
