Protection of children persistently underfunded in humanitarian responses
As the world's leaders today meet in New York to review and assess progress on the commitments they have made to end violence against children, a new report reveals huge funding gaps for child protection - leaving children in humanitarian crises unprotected from violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation.
This paper summarises findings from an initial scoping study, which seeks to review how child protection outcomes are captured when monitoring multi-purpose humanitarian cash programmes. The study intends to inform the development and piloting of new approaches to integrating child protection concerns into multi-purpose cash monitoring frameworks. It was conducted for the Alliance for Child Protection’s, Cash Transfer and Child Protection Task Force.
