The Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (the Alliance) is organizing its annual meeting in Geneva on 14 and 15 October 2019. The technical Working Groups and Task Forces of the Alliance will also be meeting on 16 and 17 October 2019. The Annual Meeting is an opportunity for Child Protection actors to come together and exchange knowledge and experience, while networking with other agencies, academics, policy makers and donors. The annual meeting represents a forum where important themes can be discussed together and ways forward can be framed.
If you are a humanitarian worker, policy maker, donor or researcher interested in issues related to protection of children in humanitarian action, you are welcome to join us. Please register using the form by 23 August 2019.
This year’s Annual Meeting will be particularly exciting, as the second edition of the Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action will also be launched. Set aside the week of October 14th so you can be a part of this momentous meeting.
Humanitarian-Development Nexus will be the main theme of this year’s Annual Meeting. This theme was selected based on a broad consultation with members of the Alliance, both at the field and at global level. This year’s meeting will explore the linkages between humanitarian assistance and more medium- and long-term development action with particular focus on developing shock-responsive, resilient systems.
The Alliance is inviting Child Protection and other sector humanitarian actors, researchers, policy maker, and donors to share their experience and groundbreaking ideas at the 2019 Annual Meeting. We are accepting abstracts that address the following, and related, issues:
- Building resilient child protection systems
