Cartographie et Analyse des Systèmes de Protection de l'Enfance au Senegal.

In 2009, Plan International, Save the Children Alliance, Terre des hommes and UNICEF came together with national partners to initiate a regional child protection systems mapping, assessment and analysis exercise in five pilot countries : Senegal, Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, Niger and Ghana. The rationale for this system mapping and analysis exercise includes recognition of the need to develop a more African-specific conceptual framework for systems work that includes non-formal systems, as well as to begin to build an evidence base on African experiences. This in-country research in Senegal constitutes the first step towards the design of a national social protection strategy in the country. The report was realised thanks to the joint collaboration of Senegal's Ministry of Family Affairs, the Ministry of Justice/ Child Protection Unit, UNICEF, Save the Children Sweden and Plan International.
