The Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Actions enables girls and boys to to thrive by:

  • Collaborating with frontline workers to identify the need for new standards and guidance;
  • Expanding the pool and building the capacity of child protection in emergencies workers;
  • Promoting and making accessible existing standards and norms, while learning from their use and improving them;
  • Promoting more effective engagement of national actors for locally relevant and sustainable child protection efforts; and
  • Engaging local communities and civil society.

From 2006 to 2016, the UNICEF-led Child Protection Working Group brought together NGOs, UN agencies, academics and donors. Over the 10-year timeframe, the group  became the global level forum for child protection collaboration and coordination in humanitarian settings.

From 2016, the body of work developed by the CPWG is being carried forward by a new global level interagency group focused on child protection in humanitarian settings, co-led by UNICEF and Save the Children: The Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (“The Alliance”). The Alliance’s overall goal is to ensure that the efforts of national and international actors are of high quality and effective in protecting children in humanitarian settings.

At the same time, the Child Protection Area of Responsibility (AoR) remains in the cluster system under UNICEF’s leadership. The AoR aims to ensure the coordination of national and international humanitarian actors’ efforts to protect children in humanitarian environments.
