Why is protection of children in humanitarian contexts so neglected, and what can we do to better protect these children from harm?
In 2019, the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action, Save the Children and the Child Protection Area of Responsibility published “Unprotected”, a report exposing shortfalls in humanitarian funding for child protection.
With the global COVID-19 pandemic exacerbating risks to children’s protection it has become imperative to get an updated picture of state of child protection funding in humanitarian contexts, based on the latest data, including initial funding within COVID-responses.
This report incorporates 2019 and 2020 funding, as well as additional funding streams related to refugee context.
A virtual launch of the report took place in October 2020, the recording can be found here.
