The CP AoR’s Localisation Initiative, grounded in the Localisation in Coordination Conceptual Framework, has taken concrete steps to operationalize localisation since the 2016 World Humanitarian Summit and subsequent Grand Bargain.
The purpose of this assessment "Documenting the Child Protection Area of Responsibilities' Approach to Localisation from 2017-2019", led by Columbia University’s Care and Protection of Children (CPC) Learning Network is to both guide the Localisation Initiative within the CP AoR, as well as its members and wider stakeholders, to inform existing approaches to localisation while promoting a principled and effective child protection response.
The assessment examines to what extent the CP AoR’s approach and subsequent initiatives undertaken in the early years of the localisation mandate have helped to advance the agenda. It unfolds key outcomes and explores in detail whether they have been achieved. Further, it highlights challenges and gaps and formulates recommendations with regard to governance and decision making, influence and participation, partnerships, funding and institutional capacity.
