The THRD-Coalition will establish self-protection mechanisms such as National Security Policy and Protection Desk. All issues of protection will be handled by the protection desk that will be working in coordinating all issues of protection.
A flow of information will maintain a channel namely contact from the first person up to the zonal representative. The information will go up to the protection desk officer.
Then from that point, that officer will have to convey a message to the coordinator who will decide on how to intervene.
The information should be shared but intervention must be within 48 hours. The major role of the protection desk is to asses risk and threats facing HRDs and advice for protection support. The desk also jointly with capacity building unit will organize security management training to HRDs throughout the country.
The established protection mechanisms will abide by the adoption of the Declaration on Human Rights Defenders in 1998, whereby a number of initiatives will be taken, both at the national, regional and international, to increase the protection of defenders and contribute to the full implementation of the Declaration.

- Established and Strengthened Self-Protection Mechanisms for the HRDs.
