Jun 10, 2015 |

On June 2, 2015, the Center on Children in Adversity/Displaced Children and Orphans Fund hosted a panel discussion event with the Child Protection in Crisis (CPC) Network to mark the tenth anniversary of the Network. Through core support from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the CPC Network has served as a vehicle for strengthening child care and protection in crisis settings through the collaborative action of humanitarian agencies, local institutions and academic partners. Emphasizing learning, the CPC Network has undertaken innovative research and builds evidence to affect change in child protection policy and practice. Globally, the CPC Network works with coalitions of the United Nations, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, and government actors to generate evidence and link research findings to global practice.

The CPC Network has become a central global hub for cutting-edge research and learning in the child protection sector and includes agencies working on child protection learning, research, policy advocacy and training initiatives in more than a dozen countries. Local learning networks are active in Burkina Faso, Colombia, Indonesia, Liberia, Sri Lanka and Uganda. In these countries, the CPC Network brings together policymakers and practitioners to determine learning priorities and ensure the results of these endeavors are incorporated into government and civil society policy and practice.
