The ‘Policy and Programming Resource Guide for Child Protection Systems Strengthening in Sub-Saharan Africa’ , is the product of an interagency collaboration on national child protection systems in Sub-Saharan Africa. The Resource Guide aims to be a user-friendly and manageable document designed to provide an overview of the current system strengthening approaches, along with a series of resources and tools available to support systems strengthening in child protection. The guide includes programming and policy tools and resources designed to improve the national protection response at both the central and decentralized level, but focuses primarily on upstream interventions. It is organized around a matrix with four main sections: (i) Mapping and assessing the system; (ii) Planning for System Strengthening, (iii) Implementing Plans, Programs, and Policies; and (iv) Monitoring and Evaluation for System Performance.
