As the Alliance Coordinator has articulated, one of our goals is to ensure that “the entire child protection sector is technically strong”. To fulfill that vision, the Learning & Development Working Group has been reconstituted under the leadership of UNHCR, Terre des hommes, UNICEF and the AoR. It is currently finalising the 2017 workplan and will soon be recruiting a full time Focal Point (please check back on the Alliance webpage).
In late March, the Working Group is co-organising a Training of Trainers with the CPMS Working Group. 25 participants, representing national and international NGOs, as well as UN agencies from primarily Africa and the Middle East, will gather in Nairobi to explore the Alliance’s approach to learning and to increase their own capacity building skills.
