The Alliance is currently developing its strategic plan for 2018-2020. The plan will guide the work planning process of the Alliance Working Groups and Task Forces. The aim is to collectively focus our efforts and clearly define the areas where the Alliance adds value.

As of September 2017, the Alliance’s 3 priorities are:

  1. Integration: Child Protection and select sectors have mechanisms in place that foster integrated programming for prevention and response to abuse, neglect, exploitation and violence against children
  2. Evidence-based programming: Alliance resources are grounded in robust evidence
  3. Localization: Diverse local child protection actors from different contexts drive and benefit from the Alliance’s activities.

These priorities were agreed on by the Steering Committee after reviewing the results of an Alliance-wide survey in August 2017.

Respondents chose the three statements that they considered to be most important to the Alliance’s work, from a list of nine. 42% respondents prioritized “Integrated programming” and “Localisation”, while only 23% respondents ranked “Innovation” in their top three.

All received a good share of the total votes. Here is the full list, in order of preference:

  1. Integrated programming
  2. Localisation
  3. Evidence-based programming
  4. Prevention
  5. Increase the capacity of the Child Protection workforce
  6. Promote linkages between humanitarian and development child protection interventions
  7. Accountability to children, families and communities
  8. Adolescents’ specific needs
  9. Innovative programming.
