1 CBCP Post-conflict Community Based CP

2 1) Operational areas of War Child 2) Working definition of CP 3) The Community Based approach to CP (CBCP) in SL 4) CBCP and systems strengthening (Uganda vs SL) 5) Recommendations CBCP Overview

3 CBCP Operational Areas Sub-Sahara: Sierra Leone, Uganda, DRC, N Sudan, RS Sudan, Burundi. Rest: Colombia, Afghanistan, IoPt, Lebanon, Sri Lanka

4 Definition of CP = protection against physical abuse, emotional abuse, neglect & exploitation. In SL the work includes attention for other child rights abuses (right to education, right to be heard) In all cases: CP = prevention and response Community Based = community owned, facilitated – not implemented by WCH, work with existing structures, action plans (including livelihoods) Overarching: advocacy CBCP Working definition

5 In Sierra Leone (system building at different levels): - start with child and direct circle around the child – awareness and capacity building, child participation - Strengthen what already exits, not put in place something new – need to know what is there and how it works - link informal with formal system - advocating for taking responsibility - Intensive intervention for 2 years – exit planned from entry - community driven and owned = sustainable + prevention CBCP CB approach to CP

6 CBCP and systems strengthening Sierra Leone Child participation in meetings, ideas heard; drop in aggression; mutual respect CP platform, advocacy integrated, community involvement in livelihood building sustainability, community cohesion + education Uganda Too early to say but: Taking responsibility is important. Prevent the help/aid trap (created by stay in camps). People develop the knowledge and power to do something Dilemma: structures in emergency setting are weak + need to deliver results

7 CBCP Recommendations CB approach to CP: include children Long term investment - life is not back to normal after emergency is over – consider recovery during emergency Support conditions for community based protection to work – advocacy at all levels Stimulate ownership – but how? Many questions, any answers? Community based approach makes a difference in particular because prevention is embedded
