Democratic Republic of the Congo: CPMS Mainstreaming
From 17 to 19 December 2014, the national Child Protection Working Group in the Democratic Republic of the Congo organized a Child Protection Minimum Standards workshop. 40 participants attended the training, including government staff working in the areas of protection and welfare, as well as staff from local and international NGOs.
Copies of the CPMS and associated resources were disseminated. The workshop aimed to give participants an introduction to the CPMS, and the introduction to the Child Protection mainstreaming process. Participants were equipped with the skills to go on and train other child protection actors, with a view to encouraging the systematic use of the CPMS.
