A gendered analysis of child protection systems responses in COVID-19 programming in South Asia #childprotection #ChildreninDetention #endviolenceathome #gbv #MHPSS

Marleen Van Der Ree
 

Pleased to share the following study report and case studies: Fry, D., Padilla, K., Neelankantan, L., and Ivantury, S., A gendered analysis of child protection (CP) systems responses in COVID-19 programming in South Asia, UNICEF, Kathmandu, 2021.

Across South Asia child protection partners have been critical in responding to COVID-19 by ensuring children have continued access to services, mitigating new and increased risks and promoting mental health and wellbeing. This study explores the changes which took place in child protection systems across South Asia in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and documents promising practices, programmatic innovations, challenges and lessons learnt from UNICEF’s programming with partners. The study was commissioned by UNICEF ROSA and prepared by the University of Edinburgh. It also includes 12 country-specific case studies around interventions on GBV, Children on the Move, MHPSS, Child Helplines and more. We hope our colleagues find the study useful and interesting.

UPDATED! MOOC: CHILD PROTECTION PROGRAMS IN THE CONTEXT OF COVID-19 AND OTHER IDOS #covid19response #Learning #resources #childprotection #ChildParticipation

Thomas.Sanderson@...
 

Learn how to adapt child protection programming to support the wellbeing and development of children during COVID-19 and other IDOs!

This is the second edition of our massive-open online course Child Protection Programs in the Context of COVID-19 and Other IDOs that begins on the 12th of April 2021. To register for this online course, CLICK HERE

The course is focused on the implications of COVID-19 and other person-person transmitted IDOs in humanitarian and development settings for children’s well-being and protection. 

As you explore the social and developmental consequences of COVID-19 for children, you’ll learn to adjust child protection programming, keep children at the centre and use Child Protection Minimum Standards (CPMS). You will also learn about joining up with other sectors to implement strategies for protecting children and strengthening partnerships with governments.
 
Learn with experts at the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (The Alliance). The course is designed to help child protection practitioners navigate COVID-19 and other infectious disease contexts. You will learn via technical notes produced by The Alliance and endorsed globally and how these have been used by colleagues on the ground.

This course is designed for child protection professionals around the world rising to the challenge of finding creative ways to continue to support the most vulnerable children, families, and communities in the context of public health measures that span from physical distancing to lockdown measures. This may include child protection advisors, coordinators, managers, officers, field managers of national and international NGOs, UN agencies, representatives of government institutions, and child and family-focused members of the social service workforce. Please note that this course is for practitioners with experience in child protection and child and family-focused programming in development and/or humanitarian settings. It is not a comprehensive child protection or child protection in humanitarian action capacity building course.

We look forwards to your participation!

Dear Marion,

 

My name is Ahmad Salem and I am the Arabic Help Desk at the Global CP AoR. I would love to participate in the revision of this important course as I want to convey some voices from the field. Please let me know how I can be included in the revision.

 

Kind regards,

Dear colleagues,

I hope you are all good and having a good week.

I am reaching out as we are starting the revision process of the "MOOC Protecting Children During COVID-19" (https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/protecting-children-during-covid-19).
We would like to do so with inputs from colleagues from country programmes ideally, from the CP sector and others as well (obviously in particular education, GP and health) - primarily because the MOOC is meant to target them at first!

I wanted to ask you if you could potentially be interested to support us with this process,
or if within your network, agency, organisation or teams you could identify some key people that could be willing to take the course (or a part of it) and provide feedback to us using the attached feedback form?

Due to the different topics this MOOC is touching upon (Safeguarding, Justice, Alternative Care, MHPSS...), feedback doesn't need to be extensive, nor complete - you could for instance target a specific topic (i.e justice) if you have a technical profile.

The course is free and you get a certificate upon completion!

Just FYI, we're targeting a second (revised) iteration of the MOOC for the beginning of 2021 (Feb, approximately), before launching translations to Spanish.

Happy to discuss this further if you need clarifications,
Do not hesitate to reach me out at: facilitation@...

Best regards,

Marion


Building CP case management capacity in a remote context #CaseManagement #Learning

Tamo Wagener
 

This is a review of remote case management capacity building in North East Syria. I personnaly found section 2.3 on CM supervisors very interesting !

 

Extract from the executive summary: In June 2019 three local non-governmental organisations (NGOs) started implementing case management. The local NGOs did not have prior case management experiences and there were few services in the areas of implementation.

 

Just over a year later, this review was conducted to analyse the remote capacity building approach and understand what worked well and what could be improved and to develop practical recommendations for this and similar projects in the future. In light of the movement and gathering restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, the findings and recommendations are designed to be replicable in other remote capacity building contexts.

Thank you for sharing your experiences, Yusuf, as I'm sure many can, unfortunately, relate.  As you've highlighted, there are a lot of dynamics, which continue to be frustrating and difficult.  And this kind of open and thoughtful communication / feedback is necessary for more substantive changes (and hopefully quicker changes).   Warmest regards, Lauren


Re: Is this forum moving in the right direction ? #Learning

 

Many thanks, Helmi, Meschac, Sarah, and Tamo for this valid point and Lauren for providing more insightful information in this regard. However, I can say there is a serious communication gap in advocating to strengthen local capacity to access and manage funding directly from a donor between the global and national offices. While the global team/offices are advocating for the grain bargain and localization agenda, the team at the national and state level are making it like a competition between the INGOs and National NGO rather than the collaborative approach. For Instance, the recent launch of EOI by education cannot wait for a multi-year grant to support education in emergency activities, NNGO consortium was disqualified base on the ground that they have not managed up to  £20,000,000 which I see as unrealistic in this regards. Therefore, there is a need to improve on the communication strategy toward a collaborative approach than the competition for better results and impact.

Re: Is this forum moving in the right direction ? #Learning

Lauren Bienkowski
 

Thank you, Helmi, Méschac, Sarah, and Tamo.  Very important points raised.  As Tamo said, for more individualized support to your context, you can email your relevant Help Desk, who can provide direct support and also pull in a few additional colleagues / Child Protection Coordinators who are working within your country or region and the CP AoR Senior Localisation Specialist.  

For colleagues in Yemen, please contact Ahmad Salem, CP AoR Arabic Help Desk: CPAOR_ArabicHelpDesk@... and you are welcome to join the CP AoR Arabic Help Desk Facebook Group.  

For colleagues in DRC, contact Adama Diallo, CP AoR French Help Desk: CPAOR_FrenchHelpDesk@... and wonderful if you can join the CP AoR French Help Desk Facebook Group.

Sarah, you and I are in touch, so perhaps we can look at some joint advocacy on this issue, looping in Fatuma and others. 

But, as Tamo mentioned, ensuring local NGOs have the support and funding that is needed is an ongoing, critical issue, and I know more and more coordination groups are working on this.  In addition to the Still Unprotected report, the CP AoR recently evaluated progress in terms of localising humanitarian responses and promoting local leadership, influence, and direct funding to local actors. This report highlights some key recommendations with regards to how national organizations could be better recognized and supported (pgs. 22-24).    

Hopefully we can connect further on what concrete actions are relevant for you and your context.  


Warm regards, 

Lauren

Hi Sarah, Méschac and Helmi, I hope you and your teams are keeping safe and well despite those very difficult times. It is so painful that child Protection is still underfunded and things do not seem to be getting better. You can find a number of recommendations to continue advocating for more funding together with other organisations - at page 47 of the "Still Unprotected" report. No magic wand unfortunately. You can also reach out to the CP AoR Help Desks, they can maybe provide access to other resources and advice. Do not hesitate to reach out directly to myself and Perrine also. Speak soon !
