Attend the event Illuminating Change: Ten years of measuring the care and protection of children

The DCHA Bureau’s Center of Excellence for Democracy, Human Rights and Governance presents "Illuminating Change: Ten years of measuring the care and protection of children."

The last ten years have been a period of intense learning about how to rigorously measure and assess international child protection and family welfare programs and policies. The issues requiring a stronger evidence base—including violence against children, psychosocial wellbeing, formal and informal child protection mechanisms, and family strengthening programs—span emergency and development contexts, and much progress has been made. Reflecting upon its work over the past ten years, the CPC Learning Network and USAID/DCOF invite you to an invigorating discussion to review the progress made in international child protection and family welfare—not only advances in measurement but also the development of knowledge transfer platforms to ensure research uptake.  Throughout the session, we will also look to the future to determine the most effective ways of measuring and assessing child protection, care, and development in the years to come.
