Partnership

The principles of partnership are at the core of our work. The CP AoR brings together national and international NGOs, United Nations agencies and other organisations supporting child protection in emergencies to share information, priorities and advocate for enhanced coordination.

Coordination is central to ensuring the quality and coverage of every child protection response. The CP AoR’s Field Support Team (FST) deploys trained and experienced staff into vital coordination roles at short notice whether for a catastrophic new emergency, the deterioration of an existing crisis or in support of existing in-country teams. The FST includes coordination experts, information management officers, and child protection coordination and thematic specialists who have experience of a wide range of contexts and who can operate in a variety of languages. Having a strong, rapidly deployable team of experienced, skilled staff is key to delivering on the Child Protection AoRs strategic goal of strengthening field-level coordination, global accountability for all AoRs and Clusters.

All of this made possible through our vital partnerships with UNICEF, the Norwegian Refugee Council, the Swiss Development Cooperation and Save the Children.

If you are interested in the work of the FST, or your agency wishes to become involved in supporting this initiative, please contact the CP AoR Global Coordinator Michael Copland (mcopland@unicef.org).
