Integrated Lifesaving Assistance for Drought and Conflict-Affected Population in Somalia/Somaliland.
Update CP Service Providers Mapping Guide in Target Areas.
Since July 2015, Save the Children Somalia /Somaliland (SCSOM) has been implementing an emergency response in the drought-affected areas of Awdal and Waqool Galbeed regions of Somaliland. In 2015, SCSOM was the first organization to raise the alarm and to respond to the drought by addressing the food security, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), and primary health needs of the most affected populations. With the worsening situation of drought conditions, SCSOM is implementing an emergency child protection project, which aims to undertake a range of child protection interventions focusing on essential frontline services that are critical to the physical survival and psychosocial well-being of children affected by the drought.
This was also coupled with a Tropical Storm Sagar made landfall on the Western edge of the Somaliland coastline on 19th May near Lughaya district in Awdal Region. The storm, which originated from the Gulf of Aden on May 15th brought with it heavy rainfall of 200-300mm an hour, strong wind with speeds of up to 120km per hour and flash floods. The Storm system had a radius of approximately 300km resulting in extensive damage in coastal towns of Somaliland. The Tropical Storm has resulted in the loss of lives, crops and livestock as well as destruction of property and infrastructure. The coastal regions of Awdal are some of the most vulnerable in the country remaining in IPC 4 and having not seen rainfall for five successive seasons.
Child Protection: To ensure that children are central to this intervention, and that they are protected from harm, exploitation, violence and abuse, the protection interventions are mainstreamed in all sectors, in addition to stand-alone interventions in certain districts. This will include supporting unaccompanied and separated children (UASC) through case management, family tracing and reunification (FTR), providing direct support to girls and boys survivors (or those at risk) of harm, exploitation and abuse.
The project will also ensure the provision of psychosocial support services to children in distress. This will be through the establishment and strengthening of community based child protection structures, such as child welfare committees (CWCs) and IDP committees to protect children and increase awareness. SC will strengthen the child protection and Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) coordination mechanisms in place, including referral pathways.
Purpose of the Mapping
This service providers mapping is condensed on updating child protection service providers on supporting the development of target location-level comprehensive child protection systems, appropriately structured and resourced.
Improved knowledge of child protection and child service provider agencies understanding and skills in responding to child protection issues in Somaliland
Development of a standardized referral and monitoring system of child protection cases through a case management protocol
Development of tools for referral, follow up and documentation of cases responded to by CP agencies
Updating child protection service providers mapping is intended to help users to identify and prioritize actions which will contribute to building an integrated and strengthened child protection system.
Provided key stakeholders with a clear picture of the structure and functions of the current child protection system;
Drawing on regional best practices of key formal and informal structures (ministries, agencies, partners, communities, etc.) to develop, administer and implement effectively, monitor and evaluate their child protection responsibilities;
Identify and prioritize opportunities to improve service delivery;
Bring key players together to support the development of the child protection system;
A final draft Service Providers Mapping report (not more than 20 pages) with analysis of findings and recommendations to inform project implementation in the targeted locations.
An indicative list of proposed programming priorities in the visited camps and existing interventions by other actors and gaps
This workshop is targeting the project intervention areas including, service providers, community structures, parents/caregivers, teachers working directly with children. Large groups will be split in smallest groups over an expanded calendar.
The Child Protection System, Mapping exercise, will be adapted for this activity. The tool will be discussed with the technical team to create a common understanding. The faiclitaor will be required to come up with other most suitable methods for data collection based on the different contexts of the selected sites.
Duration of mapping Exercise
The Mapping exercise is expected to be completed within 10 days. This will include travel days, training and compilation of the information.
