The Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action is a global interagency group focused on child protection in humanitarian settings. We set standards and provide technical support to ensure that efforts to protect children from violence and exploitation are of high quality and effective.
Nearly 250 million children in the world today — or 1 in 10 — live in areas affected by armed conflict. 50 million girls and boys are affected by disasters. Children make up over half of the 65 million people currently displaced by war.
In November 2016, the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action was launched. Agencies, donors, networks, partnerships and individuals concerned about the wellbeing of children came together to reaffirm and step up their commitment to protecting girls and boys affected by humanitarian situations.
In September 2017, Alliance members came together in Kampala, Uganda, for the annual Child Protection in Humanitarian Action global meeting.
