The Child Protection Index – a joint project by World Vision International and ChildPact was launched in Georgia and Moldova in June 2015.

You can download the full reports “Measuring the Fulfilment of a Child’s Rights” here (for Georgia) and here (for Moldova).

The Child Protection Index is an independent tool to measure each country’s child protection reforms in accordance with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).

The pilot implementations in Georgia and Moldova were financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Romania through Romania’s Development Cooperation Programme (RoAid) and implemented with the support of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)Regional Bureau for Europe and Central Asia. The Index points out how each country performs across 626 indicators adapted from the official UNCRC implementation checklist, with the understanding that child protection is a system of different parts, levels, actors and responsibilities within families, civil society and government.
