Supporting Integrated Child Protection Analysis in Humanitarian Response

  • Anywhere
Organization: Save the Children UK
Closing date: 28 Nov 2021

Objective

To support the CP AoR and colleagues in humanitarian responses in conducting integrated child protection analysis that is immediately useful for their humanitarian response.

Key Synergies and Interdependencies

The approach of the NIAF will guide the work, providing the framework structured around key child protection risks, helping field colleagues define what they need to know, identify opportunities and sources for data gathering and guiding the analysis process for child protection and across sectors. Existing techniques, tools and examples will be identified, used and built on, in order to achieve the objective. This includes but is not limited to, NIAF annexes and the child protection risk typology being developed by the Assessment, Measurement and Evidence Working Group within the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action.

To maximise the potential of integrated programming and joined-up advocacy, the outcomes of analysis should link to intervention objectives and indicators as needed in the context, drawing on Pillar 4 of the Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action: Standards to Work Across Sectors and on policies and frameworks that support integration across sectors. In support of localisation, the consultant will support the engagement of national organisations in this initiative wherever appropriate and feasible.

Outputs

The work will have two main outputs that both directly enhance the capacity of field colleagues for CP and inter-sectoral analysis.

  1. Direct problem-solving support and analysis guidance to 2 or 3 countries in overcoming the challenges they face on:

a. Identifying their Information Needs (What we Need to Know),

b. Analyzing for multi-sector and sector-specific humanitarian action,

c. Using available datasets, sources and methods to obtain the data they need,

d. Selecting and using techniques for coordinating joint analysis, and

e. Identification of standalone and integrated response pathways, linked to Pillar 4 of the CPMS

Provided support will include guidance, best practices, tools and options to choose amongst. IMOs and CP experts/Coordinators in country remain responsible to lead and implement the steps of the analysis process in their country-based CP Coordination Group, including data analysis, coordination meetings and interpretation of information.

  1. A summary of the support provided in the form of case studies, that highlight the aspects that can be useful to other CP coordination fora in other operations. This will include the modality of support provided, the relevant challenges encountered and how these were jointly overcome. This summary should be shared as a living document, where additional case studies can be added over time. Dissemination of the summary through remote means to other CP coordination fora to support the analysis and evidence-based decision-making efforts of those operations.
