Country-based CPIE/CPMS Trainings in Ecuador and Georgia
The first of four Child Protection in Emergencies (CPIE) / Child Protection Minimum Standards (CPMS) trainings has started in Ecuador. The first training is in Pedernales: one of the earthquake-impacted areas. Next, the training will be repeated in a 3-day training in Esmeraldas, then in Quito, and then in Lago Agrio.
The facilitator, Iune Baravalle is on loan to UNICEF Ecuador from her secondment from the Danish Refugee Council to UNICEF Columbia.
Another CPIE / CPMS training will be held on 6 and 7 April in Tbilisi. 21.7% of all children live under the poverty line in Georgia and are repeatedly exposed to increased risks when natural disaster such as floods, landslides, mudflows, earthquakes, storm winds or droughts strike. In an efforts to increase and improve preparedness and response capacity of child protection actors in humanitarian action, representatives of Government and civil society will particpate in this two-day training. The 20+ participants will learn to identify general child protection issues in different emergency contexts, to describe the impact of emergencies on children as well as the scope and range of child protection interventions in humanitarian action. At the end of the workshop, participants will know the purpose and nature of an orientation on child protection minimum standards, including child protection coordination in humanitarian contexts.
The CP AoR and the Child Protection Minimum Standards Working Group (CPMS WG) helped to identify the facilitators for all of these events. The CPMS WG is funding part of the workshop in Georgia.
