NIAF Handbook

The Child Protection Needs Identification and Analysis Framework (NIAF) is the approach that the CP AoR has defined since 2018 for supporting the country offices, in country Areas of Responsibility, and national and international partners to identify and analyse needs of children in humanitarian settings whether in natural disasters, complex emergencies, famine or disease. The NIAF framework is the result of a combined extensive Child Protection and needs identification and analysis expertise for adopting innovative approaches and systems in meeting Child Protection AoR mandate.
