Building on Success 2006-2016

In 2016, the body of work developed by the CPWG will leave the cluster system and be carried forward by a new global level interagency group focused on child protection in humanitarian settings, co-led by UNICEF and Save the Children: The Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (“The Alliance”). The Alliance’s overall goal is to ensure that the efforts of national and international actors are of high quality and effective in protecting children in humanitarian settings. At the same time, the Child Protection Area of Responsibility (AoR) will remain in the cluster system under UNICEF’s leadership. The AoR aims to ensure the coordination of national and international humanitarian actors’ efforts to protect children in humanitarian environments. This report summarizes innovative ways of working and important tools developed by the global CPWG from 2006-2016. It highlights how, as the group transitions, it is “building on success”.
