Child Protection in Emergencies Capacity Gap Analysis: East and Southern Africa

The Child Protection in Emergencies Professional Development Programme is a professional development initiative led by Save the Children, and funded by the IKEA Foundation. It is designed to enhance the skills, knowledge and behaviours required of mid-career child protection in emergencies practitioners and aims to increase regional and national deployment capacity. The objective of this capacity gap analysis is to gather and present information on Eastern and Southern Africa regional CPiE technical capacity and skills to tailor the design and planning of the programme. Moreover, the capacity gap analysis is designed to elicit learning and conclusions for the broader sector.

To inform the expansion of the Child Protection in Emergencies (CPiE) Professional Development Programme (PDP), a capacity gap analysis (CGA) was conducted in each of the proposed new regions: the Middle East and Eastern Europe as one combined region, as well as a joint Eastern and Southern Africa region. The objective of the CGA was to gather information on regional technical capacity and skills to tailor the design and planning of the CPiE PDP. The CGA identified opportunities and learning from current and past capacity initiatives that could strengthen the success of the CPiE PDP. Finally, the CGA was designed to elicit learning and conclusions for the broader sector beyond the CPiE PDP.
