Established in 2010, the Somalia Child Protection Area of Responsibility (CP AoR) is a forum through which agencies with child protection programmes in Somalia coordinate their interventions, seek consensus on strategic issues and create partnerships and linkages for better prioritization of the available resources. The overall objective of the group is to attain an effective and predictable response to child protection issues in Somalia through improved coordination of activities in order to enhance protection of children affected emergencies. Led by UNICEF Somalia and co-led by Save the Children International and deputy co-led by the Somali Women Development Centre (SWDC) at the National level, the national CP AoR seeks to involve relevant agencies and existing coordination mechanisms in Somalia. Membership of the Somalia CP AoR is open to UN agencies, national and international NGOs, government and civil society organizations actively involved in child protection programming in Somalia.
