Needs Identification and Analysis Framework (NIAF)

Needs Identification and Analysis Framework (NIAF) 
The Child Protection NIAF is a framework anchored in the principles of inclusion, complementarity and contextualization combining information management and analysis tools available. The NIAF creates a common approach across Child Protection coordination and response actors on the continuous needs identification and data interpretation to enable a more evidence-based analysis and therefore, a better and streamlined operational planning of child protection responses in countries affected by emergencies and crises. 

Child Protection NIAF handbook 
A NIAF handbook will be ready in Q2 2020. The handbook is a practical tool to support Coordinators, IMOs as well as CP AoR partners to develop: a) Child Protection Analytical Framework; b) HPC key strategic document (HNO & HRP); c) Situation Monitoring Systems as well as Facilitation and Coordination skills during the identification and analysis of needs.
