Thematic Areas

Child Protection

INEE is working together with the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action to encourage and support collaboration between the two sectors. The work is led by a Technical Focal Point who reports into both networks, with guidance from a multi-agency, cross-sector Reference Group. 


  • Closer collaboration between CPHA & EiE Actors at all levels of the Humanitarian Programme Cycle and at every stage in a response.
  • Improved wellbeing of children and youth affected by emergencies, crises and forced displacement.


  • Convene a multi-agency cross-sector Reference Group to oversee the work
  • Develop a position paper on the complementarity of the two sectors
  • Develop a user-friendly programming framework/toolkit for joint and integrated programming across CPHA & EiE
  • Field-testing the framework/toolkit in diverse contexts and incorporate lessons learned into the material to refine and finalize for dissemination 
  • Develop joint training materials for CPHA & EiE to increase linkages between sectors
