Endogenous protection practices for children on the move during emergencies in Gao

Herman Pingwendé Zoungrana

Working paper, 28 pages

This study by Terre des Hommes in Mali aims to identify endogenous protection practices of children on the move in Gao and Timbuktu (Mali), analyse the relevance and use of these practices by humanitarian actors when developing child protection responses, and identify the challenges and approaches to integrating these practices into the national humanitarian response. Drawing mainly from Mali’s emergency context, we make recommendations to help child protection actors improve their strategies while taking into account local context, field actors and any protection practices developed by the communities themselves.

Project information

Urban areas are increasingly the sites of humanitarian crises, from natural disasters to conflict and displacement. Through a programme of research, documenting and learning from experience and development of tools and approaches, IIED is working to build the knowledge and capacity to respond of humanitarian actors working in urban areas, and of urban actors facing humanitarian crises.
