Child and Youth-centred Accountability: a Guide for Involving Young People in Monitoring and Evaluating Child Protection Systems

The CAPE Guidebook
 draws on the work of the International Institute for Child Rights and Development (IICRD) and our partners from around the globe to develop practical tools and processes to work with children and young people to plan, monitor and evaluate child protection systems and interventions. It specifically highlights approaches, tools, insights and lessons from CAPE in Brazil, Colombia and Thailand, focused on assessing how the impact of child protection services and programs addressing sexual abuse and exploitation can be measured and evaluated from a child-centred perspective.

This Guide is designed to be used by protection organizations, facilitators, local governments, young people, communities, and other child protection actors to promote and foster strong accountability to children, youth and their communities in the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) process with respect to protection for young people.

The Guide can support you to engage with children, young people and their communities in the process of monitoring and evaluating child and youth protection programs, services and systems. It can be used to strengthen your understanding of young people’s experience of and perspective on well-being, risks and protection – with a view to strengthening M&E practices and ultimately, strengthening the accountability of protection programming, systems and services for young people. The tools are designed to be engaging and interactive, and can be used separately or together, depending on the context in which you are working and the objectives of your engagement.
