On 19 June, PHAP organised an online session together with the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action on the standards and how they are being used in practice. This was an opportunity to learn more about the standards and how practitioners are using them, what is changing in the revision, and what the next steps are for contributing to the consultations.
This event featured Minja Peuschel and Susan Wisniewski from CPMS Working Group as well as four practitioners who shared their experience of the CPMS and how they are engaging in the consultations: Riyad Alnajem from HURRAS in Syria, Patricia Landinez, from UNICEF Mexico, Yesica Serrano from CID Colombia and Efe Listowell from CHAD Intl. Nigeria. Christine Knudsen, Director of Sphere, also joined the event and provided some insights into how the CPMS relates to the Sphere standards and their current revision.
While many of the questions from participants were answered during the event (which you can watch and listen to here), there were more questions than there was time for, and the guest experts have answered follow-up questions in writing.
