Child Protection Minimum Standards

The Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (CPMS) have become one of the key resources for humanitarian workers since its launch in 2012. 

The CPMS have been developed to support child protection work in humanitarian settings by:

  • Establishing common principles between those working in child protection;

  • Strengthening coordination between humanitarian actors;

  • Improving the quality of child protection programming and its impact on children;

  • Improving the accountability of child protection programming;

  • Defining the professional field of child protection in humanitarian action;

  • Providing a synthesis of good practice and learning to date; and

  • Strengthening advocacy and communication on child protection risks, needs and responses.
