The Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (CPMS) are being revised and updated.

The revision aims to:
– Update and better the link the CPMS to the latest evidence and best practice;
– Increase applicability of the CPMS to all humanitarian contexts, while including preparedness work;
– Better communicate the standards to a wide range of child protection and humanitarian workers, particularly for those working at local levels;
– Strengthen cross-cutting issues throughout.

Now we need your input!
