2019 Edition of the CPMS

The Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (CPMS) has become one of the key resources for humanitarian workers since its launch in 2012. Years of implementing the CPMS in diverse settings revealed the need for a more user-friendly version of the Standards that would reflect recent sector learning and evidence; improve guidance on prevention, gender and age inclusion, and other cross-cutting themes; and promote applicability to a broader range of humanitarian contexts.

It is with great pride that the global Child Protection Minimum Standards Working Group (CPMS WG) of the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (The Alliance) unveils the 2019 Edition of the CPMS. 

2019 Edition of the CPMS

The CPMS endeavours to be both comprehensive and concise. In order to accomplish that goal, we have developed a set of online-only materials that complement and complete the print version. Those materials are collected here and will be periodically updated as needed:

Further Resources: CPMS 2019

The 2019 edition of the CPMS (along with other standards) is available on the Humanitarian Standards Partnership app.

To support your use of the 2019 Edition of the CPMS, the Alliance has also developed the following:

The CPMS Revision Process

The CPMS revision took two years and benefitted from the inputs of 1900 people across six continents. The CPMS WG encourages you to review early drafts of the CPMS as well as materials related to the revision process and the 2019 launch in Geneva, Switzerland.
