The Alliance's mission is to support 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 inter-agency technical collaboration on child protection in all humanitarian contexts. It sets standards and produces technical guidance for use by the various stakeholders. The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) currently co-leads the Alliance with Plan International.
The Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action facilitates inter-agency collaboration on normative work, including standard-setting and development of technical guidance. It also provides its members with technical support and guidance where needed. The Alliance’s work falls into five categories, one of which is:
- Capacity-building, learning and development:The Alliance develops technical capacity for child protection by identifying, expanding and strengthening the CPHA workforce; mapping capacity gaps; defining priorities and strategic direction for capacity development; and providing learning opportunities, both face-to-face and remote. The Capacity-building, learning and development work stream is a permanent work stream managed by the Learning and Development Working Group (LDWG). As a permanent work stream and given the extensive nature of the role of leading the LDWG it was agreed that the LDWG would have its own focal point to work with the LDWG leadership group and LDWG members to support the work plan.
The Learning and Development Working Group (LDWG) is focused on the learning and development objectives within the Alliance work plan for 2018-2020. The working group has the overall outcomes of bridging the human resource capacity and competence gaps for child protection in humanitarian action, by focusing on: increasing learning and development opportunities for CPHA actors at global, regional and national levels; developing and making accessible high quality learning material and supports for CPHA actors at all levels and across stages of emergencies; and ensuring CPHA professional, interagency developments and opportunities correspond with up to date capacity gaps, competencies and needs.
LDWG Work Plan Outcome 2018-2020:
“Bridging the Human Resource Capacity and Competence Gaps for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action.”
The overall goal of this work is to support the L&D WG Focal Point in rebranding inter agency packages with the new Alliance logo and templates.
