GPC Guidance Note: HRP Revision related to COVID-19

The Covid-19 Global Humanitarian Response Plan (GHRP) was launched on 25th March 2020. It presents financial requirements of 2.01B USD from April to December 2020. All countries with an ongoing humanitarian response plans and operations were prioritized in the GHRP, including Humanitarian Response Plans (HRPs), regional Refugee Response Plans (RRPs), the Regional Refugee and Resilience Plan (3RP) for the Syria crisis, the Regional Refugee and Migrant Response Plan (RMRP) for the Venezuela crisis, and the Joint Response Plan for the Rohingya Humanitarian Crisis (JRP), as well as a limited number of other priority countries.

The purpose of this note is to guide National Protection Clusters including the Areas of Responsibility during this process, summarizing the key elements of the Guidance Note and providing general recommendations, to ensure the centrality of protection is well reflected throughout the revision of Humanitarian Response Plans (HRPs) or development of specific COVID-19 humanitarian plans.
