Thank you for joining The Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action, ODI, UNHCR, UNICEF and IOM in a webinar to share the findings of the What Works to Protect Children on the Move report on 23 March 2021!

Children on the Move - final evaluation report cover

This report is an independent evaluation produced jointly with UNEG, ILO, IOM, UNHCR and UNICEF to determine What Works to Protect Children on the Move.  

From all regions of the world, children are moving as a result of different circumstances – as refugees or internally displaced, as voluntary migrants, through trafficking, on their own, or with family members. This evaluation reviewed and consolidated existing evidence from 89 studies across a variety of contexts – refugee and IDP camps and settlements, host communities, and in communities of origin, and a few with returnees (though this group is under-represented). This synthesis of evidence of effective approaches aims to enhance the protection of children on the move.

Moderated by the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action, we will be joined by presenters: Rachel Marcus, Senior Research Fellow in Gender Equality and Social Inclusion at ODI and Carmen Leon-Himmelstine, Senior Research Officer at ODI to share the findings of the rapid evidence assessment. 

In the second part of the webinar, Amanda Melville, Senior Child Protection Advisor at UNHCR and Noela Barasa, Child Protection Specialist at UNICEF will discuss implications for practice. 

The agenda for this webinar includes: 

  • Presentation of findings
  • Q&A
  • Panel discussion: Implications for Practice
  • Closing
