Measuring Impact Through a Child Protection Index

Pilot Study CPI Rwanda
UNHCR’s 2012 Framework for the Protection of Children articulates the centrality of child protection formulated around six goals. Strategies to achieve the goals of the Framework are being rolled out in 11 pilot countries.  In recognition of the importance of measurement and assessment of UNHCR’s child protection activities, including protection from sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV), UNHCR, the CPC Network and AVSI collaborated on this pilot study as a first step towards developing tools that can measure change in key child protection indicators. Researchers developed a Child Protection Index (CPI), based on UNHCR’s Framework for the Protection of Children, to measure the strength of the child protection system and conducted a first assessment in December 2013 in Kiziba Camp, Rwanda. This initial report presents the methodology, findings and key learnings of the pilot study.

Measuring Impact Through a Child Protection IndexIn 2015,  UNHCR, the CPC Learning Network, and TPO-Uganda released another report, revising and adding the CPI, survey methods, and focus groups for adolescents based on a study conducted from December 2014-February 2015 in Kiryandongo and Adjumani refugee settlements, Uganda.
