Access for Protection through Participation: Working with Children, Adolescents and their Communities

Children and youth make up the majority of populations affected by humanitarian crises and often play a vital role in understanding protection needs and supporting self-protection and the protection of their peers. Young people are a unique and significant group of rights holders, with the right to be heard, and the right to exercise their agency.

The virtual event will provide space to share learnings and promote exchange from projects and research being undertaken by the Global CP AoR, the Global GBV AoR and the Alliance for Children Protection in Humanitarian Action and Save the Children in partnership with communities and child / adolescent organisations. On the community negotiations it will be a chance to present research findings and recommendations for humanitarian involvement in negotiations since the 2021 Global Protection Forum and to gather insights from an expert audience.
