Encouragingly, funding for child protection in humanitarian settings is increasing. US$ 177.9 million was received for child protection specific funding in 2020, up from US$ 156.5 million in 2019 and US$ 144.6 in 2018. Despite this

however, the gap between child protection needs and funding received continued to

grow alarmingly in 2020 and 2021. Did you know that  for example, an in-depth analysis of 2020 Humanitarian Response Plans (HRPs)3 along with the Bangladesh Rohingya Joint Response Plan (JRP) reveals that only 24% of funding for child protection needs were received on average, down from 42% in 2019.4 Also in 2020, 50% of humanitarian responses

analysed (13 of the 25) received less than 25% of their child protection requirements. Check out THE UNPROTECTED: ANNUAL SPOTLIGHT ON CHILD PROTECTION FUNDING IN HUMANITARIAN ACTION – 2021 for more
