Case management is complex in any setting; it is even more complicated in a humanitarian context where risk, injuries, and violence are amplified. These guidelines have been developed at an inter-agency level through the Child Protection Working Group to complement the agreed standard on Case Management in the Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action. They aim to provide a common understanding and step-by-step guidance on how to do case management in emergencies. The primary focus of these guidelines is for use by agencies and practitioners in humanitarian settings. However, these guidelines can also be a useful resource for governments and agencies working in more stable or development situations.
