CPWG, The Child Protection Working Group

This report presents the findings of a study on child protection financing in emergencies, commissioned by the Child Protection Working Group (CPWG) of the Global Protection Cluster. The study was conducted by Save the Children. The report presents a picture of funding for child protection in emergencies in 2008 and 2009. It builds on and makes comparisons with an earlier study of child protection funding in 2007, also commissioned by the CPWG. The purpose of this second study is to look at the overall trend in funding for child protection in the eriod 2007–2009 and to identify any key patterns. The methodology for this study was desk-based research, using data from the Financial Tracking Service (FTS). The FTS, managed by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), is a global, online, real-time database of humanitarian funding needs and international contributions. The study covers funding for child protection in emergencies relating to the Consolidated Appeals Process (Consolidated Appeals and Flash Appeals) and pooled funding mechanisms (the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), Common Humanitarian Funds and Emergency Response Funds).

The following short movie was produced for the launch of the report.
