Child Frontiers in Bhutan

2015 : [ UNICEF Bhutan ] : Violence Against Children Phase 3 Quantitative Study

Child Frontiers conducted a quantitative study on comparable population-based estimates that describe the magnitude and nature of the problem of violence experienced by the children in Bhutan. Building on the work in the first two phases (literature review and qualitative study), this final phase provided critical data to enable evidence-informed interventions (preventive and responsive) to be developed to protect children from violence. It also provided important baseline data against which the National Plan of Action for Child Protection, 11th Five Year Plan and the UN One Programme (2014-2018) can be monitored and evaluated.

2014 : [ UNICEF Bhutan ] : Violence Against Children Phase 2 Qualitative Study

Following up on Phase 1, Child Frontiers extended its support for the Royal Government of Bhutan, UNICEF and its partners in a qualitative study on violence against children in Bhutan. Phase 2, which was completed in March 2015, generated important information about the various forms of violence against children as well as the drivers for violence. It has identified social, economic and cultural drivers of risk and resilience that influence a child's likelihood of being protected from violence. The training package as part of this phase can be accessed HERE.

2014 : [ UNICEF Bhutan ] : Violence Against Children Phase 1 Literature Review and Report

Child Frontiers supported the Royal Government of Bhutan, UNICEF and its partners to conduct a three-phased study on violence against children in Bhutan. The purpose of the study is to understand the magnitude, contexts and drivers of violence against children in Bhutan from which to promote evidence-based policy, planning and programming. The first phase of this project involved an in-depth literature review and secondary analysis of existing data. The analysis of the available literature was intended to pull together a comprehensive picture of what is currently known, including global best practices, and to give a sense of the challenges or gaps in the evidence base. The Literature Review can be accessed HERE.

2009 : [ UNICEF EAPRO ] : Child Protection in Emergencies (Preparedness & Response)

In partnership with the UNICEF's Asia Pacific Shared Services Centre (Emergency Unit), Child Frontiers provided a program of tailored technical capacity building and support to 12 countries in the region. Acting within the framework of the UN Humanitarian Reform Process, the Core Commitment for Children, and Cluster Approach, Child Frontiers supported UNICEF staff and their national counterparts in emergency preparedness and response to natural disasters and civil conflict. Ultimately, this program was designed to enable UNICEF officers to fulfil their child protection responsibilities under the cluster approach. The countries included under the program were: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Maldives, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Sri Lanka and Timor-Leste.
