Mid-level CPIE Staff Capacity Gap Analysis in the West and Central Africa Region (including Mauritania)

The CPiE capacity gaps analysis (CGA) in the West and Central Africa (plus Mauritania) region, targeting CPiE practitioners with 3-5 years of professional experience has been conducted to collect and provide information on:

  • Identified key CPiE capacity gaps.
  • Existing and available capacity building initiatives

The West and Central Africa region (including Mauritania) characterises for its contextual heterogeneity and complexity. The region, where both English-speaking and French-speaking countries coexist, is ridden by conflicts that affect several sub-regions, such as the Lake Chad basin, DRC, CAR, Mali, Burkina Faso and most recently Cameroon. Some of such conflicts have historically been present, if fluid in their changing dynamics; others are more recent and have brought new dimensions, namely the proliferation of terrorist groups. Subject to the effects of climate change, the region, and in particular the sub-Saharan countries of the Sahel area, is also prone to natural disasters, from flooding to droughts, that further compound the complexity of people’s livelihoods and movements. Lastly, several countries have experienced in recent years and continue to experience a serious Ebola epidemic.

This CPiE CGA reveals quite clearly that the prevailing opinion of child protection specialists is that CP and in particular CPiE competence in the region is low, and certainly insufficient to address the sheer size of the needs of such a complex context.
