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
