Proiect Child Protection Index
The objective of the project is to develop a simple evidence-based index of child protection reform efforts in the Republic of Moldova and in Georgia to raise awareness and action among governments, civil society and donors. The index will be a vital tool in advocating for the eradication of child poverty, child protection and accessibility to basic services. Once completed, the index framework will serve as a replicable model for other civil society actors across the wider Black Sea region.
1. A data management system created (using GIS and cloud based platforms) based on information collected for an index framework with over 500 indicators that will be reviewed and scored by child protection experts. The experts will provide evidence for their scoring decisions. Each indicator will be answered with 'yes', 'no' or ''partially'' and each answer will be documented with relevant information and data. The data management system will be developed in such a way as to allow for the automatization of index information requests and data comparison.
2. Child protection index and web-based visualization platform designed and tested in Georgia and the Republic of Moldova. The web-based visualization platform will be part of the ChildPact website, each country having a special sub-page in this section. The visualization platform will include easy-to-use instruments for intuitive comprehension that will allow the obtained index results to be accessed by a wide range of stakeholders, such as experts, decision-makers, concerned parents and children. An Index Visualization Manual will be prepared in advance and constantly revised throughout this stage of the project. In addition, 1-3 graphic materials will developed in each country to highlight 8 key elements: total score, implementation score, policy-implementation gap score, policy score, services score, capacity score, accountability score, coordination score.
3. Child protection index launch event organized targeting key political and child protection stakeholders. Under the ChildPact umbrella, national coalitions in Romania, Georgia and the Republic of Moldova will organize public events with the participation of all levels of political and policy stakeholders to move the index results forward into the public debate. The index results will be analyzed by 30 key political and child protection stakeholders in each country, both at the individual country level and the regional level to produce national and regional policy recommendations, and devise appropriate advocacy strategies. The project will seek visibility sponsors (from celebrity connections and political opportunities) and create events to highlight aspects of the results or related policy recommendations.
4. One report developed and shared with relevant authorities at governmental, regional and European level in order to strengthen stakeholders’ understanding of child protection issues. The report will include the conclusions and recommendation of the index experts’ analysis.
The data collection and data management system were created and the child protection index and web-based visualization platform is under construction.
