The Child Protection Minimum Standards Working Group has develoed a resource for using the CPMS in the COVID-19 response.
The 2019 CPMS package is now available in French
. A huge thank you to all the agencies and individuals who assisted in this process. The Arabic CPMS package will be launched in the final week of April 2019. We would love to hear your ideas about launching and implementing the 2019 edition in your country or context. We have funds available to cover some of your innovative ideas (i.e. a poster series or illustrations for social media, songs in local languages, short video clips, or virtual launch events). If you are interested, please contact us at email@example.com
. A limited number of hard copies are available through UNHCR's Child & Youth Protection unit and the CP AoR. In addition, agencies & individuals will be able to purchase copies through an agreement with the publisher, Practical Action
, beginning in Q3.
The CPMS WG updated its work plan for the COVID-19 response; please contact us for a copy.
We've got exciting projects in the pipeline, including:
- A new video introducing the CPMS;
- An update to the CPMS e-course with new modules on infectious disease outbreaks, the socio-ecological model and Pillar 4; and
- A new implementation package.
