Child Protection Rapid Assessment

Subject/Objective: 
Mainstreaming protection concerns across the country programme is a distinctive feature of COOPI’s modus operandi. This is true in Iraq too and particularly in the education in emergency (EiE) sector, in which COOPI has been investing since the beginning of its operations in the country. To operationalise the adoption of an integrated approach between education and protection, in December 2018 COOPI conducted a Protection Rapid Assessment in Qayyarah. The overall purpose of the assessment was to identify immediate protection risks and gaps for children and their families so as to inform further programming in the EiE sector in the area of Qayyarah, an area where COOPI is collaborating with 10 schools already.
Methodology: 
Research tools. COOPI protection staff in collaboration with the staff of local partner Afkar undertook the assessment using three main research tools. First, they held Focus Groups Discussions (FGDs) with parents (groups were separated by gender to ensure freer expression). Then they held interviews with key informants (KII) such as teachers and headmasters in order to capture in depth insights from the most knowledgeable community representatives and triangulate the information provided by parents. Finally, they mapped children’s activities involving the interaction with groups of children describing their daily activities and indicating possible areas of protection concern for themselves and their families. The three tools were translated and adapted from the Child Protection Assessment and the COOPI Rapid Assessment Toolkits.
