Children are affected by specific protection problems such as: psychosocial distress, family separation, association with armed groups and forced recruitment, exposure to mines and other explosive devices, but also by already structural protection problems in the country that are exacerbated by exploitation and abuse by marabouts, gender-based violence (child marriage, survival sex, sexual exploitation), child labour and other forms of abuse.
The child protection coordination AoR, led by UNICEF and co-led by COOPI, ensures the coordination of child protection interventions in emergencies to respond to the protection needs of children affected by conflict and natural disasters.There are two coordination groups at sub-national level: in Diffa (in co-leadership with the Government (DRPE) and in Tillabery (led by the Government (DRPE).
