PROJECT TITLE AND IDENTIFICATION
Protection of Internally Displaced Populations and
Host Communities (Protection Monitoring, SGBV and
Child Protection)


GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION(S)
North West and South West Regions, Cameroun

BRIEF BACKGROUND OF THE PROJECT
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees
(UNHCR) is a non-for-profit, humanitarian
organization, and agency of the United Nations. The
mandate of the High Commissioner was established
by the resolution 319 A (IV) of 3 December 1949, and
provided with its Statute in resolution 428 (V) of 14
December 1950. The Statute stipulates that the High
Commissioner "acting under the authority of the
General Assembly, shall assume the function of
providing international protection to refugees,
stateless people and other people of concern, and of
seeking permanent solutions to their problems." In
Cameroon, UNHCR established its presence since
1982 and has provided its services to Refugees,
Asylum seekers, Returnees, Internally Displaced
Persons and to People facing the Risk of
Statelessness. As of September 2018, Cameroon is
home to some 696,097 People of Concern to UNHCR,
including 263,206 Central African, and 100,504
Nigerian refugees. UNHCR currently runs 10 offices
within the country, including a Representation in
Yaoundé, 3 Sub Offices (Bertoua, Meiganga, Maroua),
5 Field Offices (Batouri, Djohong, Touboro, Douala and
Buea) and 1 Field Unit (Kousseri).
The current security situation in the North West and
South West regions (NwSw) is unfavorable. It is
marked by a spiral of violence characterized by attacks,
exactions, killings, abductions and multiple incidents
of human rights violations. These attacks and counter-
attacks have resulted in deaths, violence, forced
displacements of populations. The number of
displaced populations in the NwSw regions has been
rising exponentially in a few months since November
2017 due to the unabated spiral of violence. In
February 2018, based on estimates communicated by
the Catholic Church, there were a total of 25,775 IDPs
(some 5,155 Households) in the Meme and Manyu
divisions of the South West region. At the end of March
2018, as violence spread to more villages, including in
Mamfe and Monge/Kumba subdivisions of the South
West region, an UN-OCHA inter-agency assessment
mission reported that the number of displaced people
had reached 40,000. By April 2018, the North West
and South West regions had been so seriously
affected by the crisis that the number of displaced
persons had reached as many as 160,000 people (of
which 150,000 in the South West and 10,000 in North
West regions). To date, estimates by Humanitarian
Organizations indicate that the instability has
uprooted a no less than 437,515 people (including
350,919 in the North West and South West regions,
the rest settling in neighboring towns, forests and
villages). A larger number of the displaced people have
settled in deep forests while others are found in
villages and towns spread across the abovementioned
areas. Incidents of violation of human rights, some
very gruesome, are continuously reported, as
undisciplined and uncontrolled armed men from
warring sides continue to violently disrupt normal life
in the affected regions. In addition to the increase in
internal & external displacements, humanitarian
organizations have been registering harrowing
protection incidents. In a recent report ("A turn for the
Worse – violence and Human rights Violations in
Anglophone Cameroun"), Amnesty International
reports hideous assaults on schools, beheading of
traditional chiefs, arbitrary arrests, incommunicado
detention, targeted assassinations, torture and death
in custody, extra-judicial executions, beatings, physical
assaults and burning of entire villages. Incidents of
kidnapping, forced labor, gender-based violence
including rape and forced recruitment of children in
armed groups have also been reported.
In accordance with its responsibilities with regard to
its engagement with the internally displaced persons,
UNHCR intends to play a crucial role in the delivery and
coordination of life-saving protection services in its
capacity as a Protection Cluster lead agency. It is in
this regard that, along with other protection actors,
UNHCR established a presence in Buea (and soon in
Bamenda) where it has deployed an Emergency
Response Program with a Protection Component
focusing on Protection Monitoring, prevention of and
response to SGBV and Child Protection.
UNHCR hereby invites competent National and
International Organizations to express their interest in
working in partnership with UNHCR in 2019 on the
implementation of a whole set of protection-related
activities, which are summarized below.

PROJECT'S OBJECTIVES, OUTPUTS AND ACTIVITIES
The overall objective of this Project is to contribute to
the improvement of the protection situation of IDPs
and returnees, through the proactive monitoring of the

affected populations to have a full and unhindered
access to relevant information about the protection
and assistance services that they are entitled to,
raise any concerns they may have and get the
support needed accordingly;

as daily and weekly protection updates highlighting
any issues which may need to be addressed as a
matter of urgency;

other capacity building measures deemed
appropriate for the relevant civilian and law
enforcement authorities, as well as local protection
partners;

Internal Displacement in accordance with IASC's
Handbook for the Protection of Internally Displaced
Persons,

SGBV survivors including their referral to the
relevant service providers, as needed;
• Promote the Protection of IDP Children, in particular
by ensuring IDP girls and boys are safe where they
live, learn and play,
• Actively involve adolescents and young people in
the design and delivery of child protection services;
• Establish and manage child friendly spaces;
• Advocate for targeted support to IDP girls and boys
with specific needs,
