Purpose of the Evaluation

The purpose of the evaluation is twofold: First and foremost, the evaluation will be a global public good informing the sector, contributing to learning and knowledge exchange on what works for strengthening child protection systems for children on the move. Within UNICEF, it will inform strategy development, design and implementation of future UNICEF initiatives in the realm of protecting children on the move from violence, exploitation and abuse.
