Community-level child protection in humanitarian action
We work to promote community-level child protection programming.
Plan proposed a new approach that focuses on strengthening practitioners’ understanding of existing CCP structures and their capacity to protect children, rather than prescriptive step-by-step models. This represents a shift away from the community-based approach in favor of one that truly focuses on understanding and growing existing community capacities, rather than taking a top-down NGO-driven approach.
On behalf of the Community-Level Child Protection Task Force under the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action, Plan developed and launched a series of resources including a reflective field guide on community-level approaches to child protection in humanitarian action and an accompanying face-to-face capacity-building package, as well as an online learning series. These materials will promote sustainable CCP approaches throughout and beyond humanitarian crises, linking with development and recovery actions.
