Accountability

We are committed to be held accountable for our work and increasing transparency in our procedures without undermining confidentiality.

2021 Annual Report

2021 was one of the most challenging years for the global Human Rights movement in decades, as the intersectional crises caused by the rising global power of the far-right, the erosion of the political middle ground, the securitisation of public policy, rising unchecked corporate power and the instrumentalisation of technology to control or reduce civic space are widened and deepened in the context of the Covid-19 crisis. Despite these challenges, 2021 was a year of hard and prolific work for DDP, in which we achieved new highs across all areas of our work.

LESSONS LEARNED

Positionality

The growth and diversification of our team, and the desire to continue aligning our work further with intersectional feminist and decolonial values, have given us a renewed impetus to consider the positionality of our work.

LESSONS LEARNED

Field Building

The ongoing outbreak of crises, such as in Afghanistan and Myanmar, has highlighted the need for DDP to have operational readiness to respond should these affect areas in which our team operates.

LESSONS LEARNED

Regionalization

The change to a regionalized structure, with our team operating closer to the beneficiary communities, will increase our understanding of the contexts and trust and fluidity of referrals.

LESSONS LEARNED

Collaboration

We identified more productive methods for carrying out internal processes that demand the entire team’s participation, which consider people in different time zones and with differently structured home lives.

NEW DIGITAL PROTECTION ACCOMPANIMENTS

“DDP’s support during the pandemic was essential. We needed to structure a virtual office, and without DDP we would have done something else in an insecure way. Now, we have a secure virtual office that everyone uses to work, which allows us to continue our actions and collective work.”
