“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.
