Upcoming Child Protection Minimum Standards Training in Colombia
UNICEF and UNFPA in Colombia have joined together to facilitate a Child Protection Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Action training from 23 - 25 October 2017. A variety of protection actors from the humanitarian community have been invited, and a total of 30 professionals from the Protection Cluster and the GBV Sub-Cluster will participate. To identify and select the standards to be included in the training, UNICEF and UNFPA created an online survey, which was shared by all humanitarian coordination structures (not only protection) in the country, and 71 persons from more than 12 territories participated. This helped facilitators not only to understand which CP topics are most needed in terms of capacity building but also to evaluate the interest and availability of both field-based protection specialists and non-protection actors in participating. Results from this training will be available after November 2017.
