Child Protection Minimum Standards (CPMS)
The Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (CPMS) were established in 2012 to serve as common principles among those working in child protection in emergencies to improve the quality of child protection programs and their impact on the lives of crisis affected children.

CPMS in Sudan
The CPMS were launched in Sudan in June 2013. The National Council for Child Welfare (NCCW) led the launching process on behalf of the government of Sudan, alongside the child protection lead agency UNICEF, child protection subsector partners and the global Child Protection Working Group.
Following the launch, NCCW and the Sudan child protection subsector facilitated the contextualisation of the global minimum standards to Sudan. To ensure relevant and transparent contextualisation, consultations were held with child protection actors at federal and at state levels to select key standards to be prioritized during the contextualisation process. Out of 26 minimum standards, 9 were identified by Government and humanitarian actors to be prioritised in the contextualisation. The following standards were selected:
Standard 1 Coordination
Standard 3 Communication, advocacy and media
Standard 5 Information Management
Standard 8 Physical violence and other harmful practices
Standard 11 Children associated with armed forces or armed groups
Standard 13 Unaccompanied and Separated Children
Standard 15 Case Management
Standard 16 Community based mechanisms
Standard 20 Education and Child Protection
