The members of the CP AoR are humanitarian organisations who are interested in improving coordinated responses for child protection. This also includes national and local entities that are members of field-based child protection coordination groups in cluster and early warning settings. The CP AoR has evolved in an inclusive spirit since its inception in 2007.

In addition to our Strategic Advisory Group members, membership is open to organisations, not individuals, and requires a letter of commitment from director level within the organisation. Members commit to:

  • Uphold, use and actively promote CP AoR agreed principles, standards, tools and other products at all levels within the organisation, and with partners.
  • Actively participate in child protection coordination at field-level fora.
  • In contexts or situations where inter-agency tools are not appropriate, coordinate with other responding agencies and agreeing on an alternative.
  • Provide inputs to inter-agency tools and resources produced by the group, according to area of expertise, mandate and interests; endorse these tools and resources.
  • Attend one face-to-face meeting of the group per year.

Association is open to organisations and individuals, without any formal procedure, and does not entail any explicit commitments. In recognition of the important contribution made by individual consultants and personnel, these individuals are also welcome to be associated with the CP AoR.

Without joining the group in any formal way, any person or organisation is also welcome to make use of the resources on this website.
