Area of Responsibility
In times of crisis – whether caused by armed conflict, sudden onset disaster, or an epidemic – children face significant protection concerns. Thus, our aim, as an Area of Responsibility within the Global Protection Cluster, is to lead the coordination of child protection efforts in humanitarian settings in order to ensure children in emergencies are protected from abuse, neglect, exploitation, and violence.
