This document was developed by Plan International and the Child Protection AoR to guide coordinators and NGOs that co-lead child protection coordination groups. It offers senior management of NGOs and Cluster Lead Agencies (CLAs), as well as CP Coordinators, information and advice to help them decide whether and how to enter a co-leadership, or how to improve their existing arrangement.
Reports and evaluations all point to the positive benefits of co-leadership for a better response, and this guidance aims at making a contribution in further increasing co-leadership. This publication draws on a survey of NGO co-leads and key informant interviews with coordinators, NGO co-leads, and members of child protection coordination groups in several countries.
This is a growing area of interest in our sector (and beyond) with this guidance representing another step to increase co-leadership, which we hope in the future will also include more national and local NGOs. If you are currently sharing leadership in your context and would like follow up support or to share your experience, the CP AoR will be glad to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
