Child Protection in Emergencies: Coordination Handbook
This Handbook has four sections, each of which is divided into chapters: Section 1 explains the operating environment in which international
humanitarian coordination takes place. Section 2 unpacks the first core function of cluster coordination: to establish a platform for service delivery. Section 3 focuses on the five other core functions of cluster
coordination: informing strategic decision making, developing a
child protection response strategy, building national capacity for
preparedness, monitoring and evaluation, and advocacy. Section 4 provides guidance to ensure standards for quality child protection programming are promoted and upheld.
