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. 

To that end, the first revision is currently underway under the leadership of the global Child Protection Minimum Standards Working Group (CPMS WG) of the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (The Alliance). 

The CPMS WG encourages anyone working in child protection and related fields to read the DRAFT Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (CPMS) 2018 in English, French, Spanish, or Arabic.  For more information on the revision process, please visit:
