Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.
Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.
And we never give up.
The Child Protection Section of UNICEF Sierra Leone, in collaboration with the Government of Sierra Leone, supports the implementation of a range of activities with the aim of strengthening child protection systems that prevent and respond to violence, abuse, exploitation and neglect of children and ensure justice for children.
How can you make a difference?
While focusing on the establishment of formal structures, services and national capacities that can address all child protection concerns, UNICEF also recognizes the critical importance of local and/or community-based initiatives that involve the children and their families themselves, community members, traditional and religious leaders and non-state actors across all sectors working together to protect children, whereby a great deal of the work is done through partnerships with civil society organizations (CSOs).
This analysis and assessment aims to provide an external, objective view of the 1) relevance, 2) sustainability, 3) effectiveness and 4) efficiency of the strategies and approaches taken by the following five CSO partners in their programme implementation vis-à-vis each of the output areas, in order to capture best practices of interventions as well as their gaps and bottlenecks.
It is important to note that some CSOs carry out a combination of work under all of the five outputs areas, whereas others focus exclusively on a single area.
While recognizing that a little under three years of programmatic implementation might not be sufficient to already generate significant levels of results and change, it is nevertheless critical to take stock of the results and learnings thus far, document promising practices which could be replicated and scaled up, help validate or reorient programmatic and geographic choices, and therefore, provide a more solid foundation for further programming. The findings will help inform strategic directions of the subsequent 2-year RWP in the course of its development, which is also when the CSO partnerships will be re-evaluated (end of 2019). Thus, if it is concluded that changes need to be made, there will be ample time for phase-out.
The methodology for the analysis and assessment will include:
Some of the key questions to be explored through the analysis and assessment of strategies and approaches should include:
