The Community Protection Approach is a community engagement and empowerment instrument that has been developed by WeWorld-GVC

CPA Pillars

The multi-layer structure and outputs of the CPA are effective for understanding and addressing the coercive environment that a given population is facing. Still, it may be perceived as too complex and unclear at first glance.

For this reason, we developed 5 pillars to present and navigate the CPA. The first pillar introduces the approach, while the 4 others represent the main pillars of the methodology.

The CPA is proposed by WeWorld-GVC to be replicated, further developed or used in the design of derivative mechanisms. Therefore, WeWorld-GVC has developed the Handbook and complementary supports to guide the possible application or learning of the CPA by any organization or institution.
