The Alliance supports the efforts of humanitarian actors to achieve high-quality and effective child protection interventions in humanitarian contexts (in both refugee and non-refugee settings). As a global network of operational agencies, academic institutions, policymakers, donors and practitioners, the Alliance facilitates interagency technical collaboration on child protection in all humanitarian contexts, including refugee settings. It sets standards and produces technical guidance for use by the various stakeholders.
Working groups, task forces and technical focal points implement the Alliance work plan. They are led by members of the Alliance, operating under the supervision of the Alliance coordinators. Working groups are permanent work streams, while task forces and technical focal points are expected to serve a specific technical function and dissolve once the task is complete.
This report is a compilation of the achievements made by each working group and task force from 2016 to 2017, based on the agreed-upon work plan. It highlights achievements, describes ongoing processes, and outlines challenges and shortfalls.
