The revised Child Protection in Humanitarian Action Framework is now available. This new version is more closely aligned with the Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (CPMS), and better reflects the competencies required to work effectively with other sectors. The format and language of the framework has been simplified, and the framework is now available as an interactive pdf.
The initial purpose of the Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (CPHA) Competency Framework is to contribute to improved child protection outcomes in humanitarian settings by providing an inter-agency set of technical and behavioural competencies required by CPHA practitioners.
The Child Protection in Humanitarian Action Competency Framework builds on the Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (CPMS) to articulate a set of recognised competencies for child protection in humanitarian action practitioners. It broadly describes expected standards of performance across a number of competency domains that can be applied to different roles within the sector.
It is a sector-wide guidance to advance the accountability, effectiveness and predictability of child protection prevention, preparedness, response and recovery programming for affected populations.
