Protection Analytical Framework

The PAF is based on the protection risk equation theoretical framework. Within the PAF, protection risk is defined as the actual or potential exposure of the affected population to violence, coercion, or deliberate deprivation. The protection risk equation (Figure 4) is a non-mathematical representation of the three factors that contribute to risk. A protection risk arises when the threat and the vulnerability (of an individual or a community) are greater than the capacity to prevent, respond, and recover from that specific threat. The protection risk equation requires more than a broad assessment of an individual’s or community’s vulnerability and capacity. Instead, PAF users must consider the particular vulnerability and capacity that is associated with each identified threat.
