Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action & INSPIRE strategies: A Guide to Complementarity and Use in Humanitarian Action
The Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action, initially released in 2012 and revised in 2019, and the 2016 INSPIRE seven strategies package to end violence against children both promote similar approaches and principles to ensure that every child can grow up safe and secure. In some contexts, using CPMS and INSPIRE in conjunction offers the potential to strengthen approaches and deliver better results for children affected by humanitarian crises. When appropriate to the context, interventions mentioned in INSPIRE may be used to support implementation of specific standards in the CPMS. Equally, key actions in the CPMS can provide more detailed guidance for implementing INSPIRE interventions.
This guidance is directed primarily at practitioners, coordinators, governments and donors working in humanitarian settings, including refugee contexts.
