Some introductory text to the CPC taskforces.
Concerning emergency settings, the Assessment and Measurement Task Force has established a list of “hard to measure” issues for which it is undertaking systematic reviews of current methods and tools; these reviews will be followed by projects to create and to pilot new methodologies. The “hard to measure” issues include: separated and unaccompanied children, psychosocial well-being, sexual violence against children and household violence. The Task Force is also continuing to refine emergency needs assessment methods and continues to review methods to measure grave violations of children’s rights in areas of armed conflict. Outside of humanitarian contexts, the CPC Learning Network is also developing methods to enumerate children living outside of family care and creating innovative child protection indices and frameworks.
