  • Child Protection

    UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

    Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

    And we never give up.

    For every child, safety

    The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) comprises fifteen Member States (Antigua and Barbuda, The Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, Saint Lucia, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago) and five Associate Members (Anguilla, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, and Turks and Caicos Islands).

    Areas of functional cooperation include health and social development, education, telecommunications, justice, disaster emergency response and climate change. Prevention of violence against children is an agreed priority in the Community.

    In this regard, the Twenty-Third Meeting of the Council for Human and Social Development (COHSOD)on Children and Youth, 10 – 11 July 2012. Guyana, committed Member States to taking decisive action and mandated the development of a Regional Strategy to prevent all forms of violence against children.

    The Caribbean Community Strategic Plan 2015 – 2019, in addressing strategies for building social resilience also recognises the importance of ‘Enhancing Citizen Security and Justice’ and in this context outlines measures for the prevention of crime and violence, noting that, inter alia ‘Programmes will target children/youth in schools and communities and will focus on addressing the major risk factors for crime and violence at the individual, family and community levels’.

    In addition, the Region has also crafted a Human Resource Development 2030 Strategy, which seeks to ensure that citizens of the Region, especially, children and youth are provided with quality education experiences that will enable acquisition of twenty first century skills. Concomitant with quality learning experiences, is the fact that children and youth learn in safe, secure non- threatening environments

    As one means of addressing its strategies, the Caribbean Community, in partnership with UNICEF, completed a draft regional strategic document on violence against children (April 2016).

    This document must now be updated and presented to COHSOD for approval and subsequent implementation by Member States and Associate Members.

    The overall purpose of this

    consultancy will be to finalise the 5 -year strategic document on violence against children for CARICOM Region. This is expected to be done in full partnership with the CARICOM Secretariat, UNICEF and key representatives of the Member States.

  • Update the literature review to capture any new research findings in relation to VAC
