UNRWA, United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East
This report provides an overview of the findings and recommendations of a UNICEF funded UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) child protection mapping study conducted between May and August 2014. This includes an overview of current approaches to child protection within the Agency’s programme and operations with a view to identifying opportunities and challenges for developing an UNRWA Child Protection Framework.
The report is organized according to key child protection system components in UNRWA’s approach to child protection including i) policy framework ii) services for children and families iii) assessment and analysis vi) capacity vii) coordination and v) advocacy. The final section pulls together the analysis of the mapping, drawing together the findings of the specific components of UNRWA’s approaches to child protection and subsequent recommendations. The findings and recommendations were presented at an Agency-wide consultation workshop in November 2014 to determine next steps in developing a UNRWA Child Protection Framework.
