The new “How to” note enables country programmes to include CRG issues in their generic Child Rights Situation Analysis.
Since the late 1990s the Child Rights Situation Analysis (CRSA) has been a central part of Save the Children’s planning cycle. A Generic CRSA is essential both to help determine country or regional strategies, and to make decisions as to which specific thematic programmes to develop.
However, the “generic” CRSA did not include Child Rights Governance issues. The CRG Global Initiative has therefore developed this “Add On” to the generic guidance, to encourage country programmes, regardless of their current focus, to examine child rights governance issues when carrying out their ge¬neric CRSAs.
This “How to” note is intended to be read alongside the existing guidance on CRSAs and should enable informed decisions to be made about addressing issues of governance. Should a country decide that a Child Rights Governance Programme is a strategic priority a more detailed thematic analysis will be necessary.
