According to the humanitarian response plan for 2022, over 2 million children are in need of child protection services which spans across a multisectoral approach. The varying degree of questions that will startle the mind for a minute
is; What has changed over time? What is left to do? What is the varying degree of impact of actors spread across the protracted crisis environment? What specific roles did they play for the past 13 years? Child protection intervention has truly been around for quite a number of years.
The crunching number of needs will relate to one as though the problems are never-ending. Actors who have been at the forefront of preventing and responding to CP issues cannot exhaust the varying degrees of CP concerns within the BAY states. The data thus provided in the HNO documents and HRP documents for 2022 do suggest that these problems will require a sufficient number of actors with the right funding to tackle the various degrees of protection concerns. The root causes still underlie within the lack of more actors who possess the technical know-how in responding to CP concerns.
What can actors do to provide quality service, and reach the intended beneficiaries? Actors must first own these data, they must take ownership of it, and channel appropriate responses and preventive plans during their implementation. The first line of information relies on the actors who have a presence within the locations they are currently implementing services. The core of this is that resources might not be enough after the target is reached but at the end of it all, Innovations play a larger function to reduce the crunching numbers. It is not yet clear what 2023 holds, even though the sub-merged contributed to causing more harm, it is expected that proactive services and innovations should begin to become more visible in all humanitarian approaches. More and more consortiums, and partnerships, will also cover the excessive needs when actors begin to dire areas that are yet to be covered. Assessment should be coherent, to adequately match intervention efforts, before implementation proceeds.
