Child Frontiers in South Sudan

2018 : [ World Vision International ] : Recruitment and use of children in armed conflict

Child Frontiers supported World Vision International in a research to look at the experiences of children and young people in terms of what has led them to join armed groups as well as what has kept them safe from being recruited. The research reviewed best practices to prevent child recruitment especially those focused on building children’s resilience, taking account of the perceptions of various stakeholders, including children, parents, community leaders and child protection actors. The research drew parallels between the interventions aimed at keeping children from recruitment with those aimed at keeping children safe from other forms of violence in fragile and conflict affected areas. Data for the research came from fieldwork in Central African Republic and Colombia, as well as three case studies focused on the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan and the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. The findings synthesised into a global report, with recommendations that can be tailored to policy and public audiences in different countries. The Final Report for study can be accessed HERE.

2017 : [ World Vision UK ] : ADAPT 4 Emergencies in South Sudan and Uganda

Child Frontiers worked with World Vision to develop the existing Child Protection ADAPT (Analysis, Design and Planning Tool) to also be used for child protection in emergencies. The existing ADAPT developed by World Vision was specifically designed to help with the identification, prioritisation and root cause analysis of child protection in a country context, including also the identification and mapping of the systems that are in place to protect children. World Vision and Child Frontiers worked to build on recent evidence, lessons learned and current dialogue on child protection in emergencies assessment and measurement. The draft tool was subsequently trialed and piloted in two South Sudanese refugee camps and in northern Uganda.
