Child Frontiers in Lebanon

2019 : [ World Vision UK ] : ADAPT for Emergencies in Lebanon

Child Frontiers is working with World Vision to develop the Child Protection in Emergencies Analysis, Design and Planning Tool (CPiE ADAPT). The CPiE ADAPT is specifically designed to help with the identification, prioritization and root cause analysis of child protection in a given country context, including also the identification and mapping of the systems that are in place to protect children.  The draft CPiE ADAPT was subsequently piloted in two South Sudanese refugee camps and in northern Uganda in 2017, while a pilot with Syrian refugees in Lebanon is currently underway in 2019.

2019 : [ UNICEF Lebanon ] : Technical support in implementing the roadmap for alternative care in Lebanon

Child Frontiers is providing technical support and advice to the UNICEF Lebanon Country office around strengthening family-based care and alternative care especially non-institutional alternatives in its support of the Ministry of Social Affairs/Juvenile Protection Division (MOSA). The scope of work includes compiling best practices, community care and other alternative care models from UNICEF networks and partners on alternative care as per the scoping study also conducted by Child Frontiers in Lebanon in 2017. The current work will also include a budgeted action plan, capacity building and implementation of the action plan including a review of tools and development of new tools, standards and guidance on the establishment of different care models for children deprived from appropriate family care. Child Frontiers will continue to work closely with MOSA and other statutory actors in strengthening institutional capacities and supporting the establishment of a monitoring and evaluation network within MOSA to ensure oversight and quality assurance in the implementation plan.

2019 : [ UNICEF Lebanon ] : Study of Violence in Schools and Best Practices

Child Frontiers, in partnership with the Lebanese research organization CRD Consulting, is conducting formative research to explore the root causes and consequences of the different types of violence in schools in Lebanon, as well as studying best practices to prevent violence in schools. The results of the study will be used by UNICEF and Save the Children Lebanon to advocate with the government for the implementation of measures to prevent or better respond to violence against girls and boys in Lebanese schools. The research study will also inform the efforts of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MEHE) to develop a strategy for the operationalization of the Child Protection Policy in schools. The study will adopt a qualitative approach, including key informant interviews and focus group discussions with children, school staff and NGOs working in the education sector.

2016 : [ UNICEF Lebanon ] : Policy and Provision of Alternative Care for Children

Child Frontiers conducted research for UNICEF on the alternative care system/structure in Lebanon and its ability to meet the needs of children in the mid- to long-term, in line with international standards on alternative care. This included an assessment of areas for best return on investment while also scoping areas for intervention and scale-up. The basis of this assignment is UNICEF's identification of alternative care as a key priority area to be addressed within the framework of its new Lebanon country programme 2017-2020.

2011 : [ UNICEF MENA ] : Regional Study of Decentralized Child Protection Systems

Child Frontiers collaborated with the UNICEF Middle East and North Africa regional and country offices to study child protection systems in what was to have been 5 countries in the region. This collaboration was a key component of the UNICEF MENA's "Regional Child Protection Implementation Framework", focused upon the generation of knowledge and information for systems reform. Political turmoil in the region cut short the project, which ultimately was only implemented in Lebanon. The Final Report for Lebanon can be accessed HERE.
