The Child Protection Index to be launched in Brussels on 28 September 2016

Share Tweet Share

The Child Protection Index (CPI), a new tool created jointly by World Vision and ChildPact, maps government efforts in nine countries in the South Caucasus and Balkans to protect girls and boys from violence and exploitation.

The CPI makes use of 600 indicators drawn from child protection language in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). The indicators together act as a kind of “to-do” list to end and prevent violence, child trafficking, child labour, discrimination and other violations of a child’s rights.

The CPI can be used to hold governments accountable for their commitments and actions. The CPI transcends political platforms and partisanship. It serves to remind Index countries of their accomplishments, shortcomings and commitments to child protection reform regardless of who holds political office.
