Needs Identification and Analysis Framework for Child Protection Response Planning during COVID-19

The objective of the NIAF COVID-19 guidance and tools is to identify general and child protection specific context-based overarching indicators that would allow the adjustment of the child protection response to the changes caused by COVID-19 pandemic and consequent measures.

It provides a set of tools to add to existing response planning, not substitute it: priority areas, population groups in need and priority issues already identified in the existing planning should be complemented, not discounted. This specific COVID-19 NIAF guidance is leading up to the more general Needs Identification and Analysis Framework (NIAF) Guidance, which is intended to support CPCG colleagues in the field in their analysis for humanitarian response.
