Back to What Counts: Birth and Death in Indonesia

In July, the CPC affiliate Center on Child Protection at the University of Indonesia (PUSKAPA)--working with the Indonesian Ministry of National Development Planning (BAPPENAS) and the Australian-Indonesia Partnership on Governance for Growth (KOMPAK)--launched a study looking at the bottlenecks, barriers, and opportunities in the existing birth and death registration system in Indonesia. The findings of this study inform and bolster the government's plan to achieve 85% civil registration coverage by end of 2019.   This study found that civil registration is far from universal in Indonesia. One in three children had no legal documentation of their birth, two in five ...Read More

“Adapting to learn, learning to adapt”: Overview of and considerations for child protection systems strengthening in emergencies

Systems strengthening is becoming a dominant paradigm for many child protection actors. In spite of the prevailing support, the conceptualisation of a systems strengthening approach remains an area of continued discussion and consensus building. Various studies have indicated ongoing challenges in implementing and realising systems strengthening activities in practice. Based on this the Systems Strengthening and Disaster Risk Reduction Task Force of the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (formerly the CPWG), co-led by the Child Protection in Crisis (CPC) Learning Network and Plan International initiated a process to develop an overview document with key considerations for practitioners.
