Creating a Child Protection Index

ChildPact and its members plan to build a Child Protection Index, composed of country-level child protection indices for each ChildPact country. The index will be an independent tool to measure each country’s child protection reform in accordance with the UNCRC’s rights based approach  and the systems approach to child protection.

The results will show where each country stands in child protection, pointing to those reform areas where more progress is needed. The index will offer information about: policy development, policy implementation, actual service delivery, capacity for service provision, accountability in the child protection system and coordination of the actors involved. The index will offer a transparent cross-country comparative view as the countries are assessed across the same list of indicators.
