DRAFT – Toolkit on Child Rights in Humanitarian Crises and Post-Crisis Transition, July 2012 Tool 5. Rights-based Capacity and Will Analysis Checklist Rights-based Capacity and Will Analysis Checklist The purpose of this tool is to provide an indicative question set to show the types of questions that could be included in a capacity assessment. Organizations undertaking a capacity assessment would need to develop a comprehensive question set that is relative to the local context and the sectors and stakeholders being assessed. Child rights questions can be included in broader capacity assessment processes. Authority Government Does the government body have unhindered and consistent access to the affected area? If not, who does? Does the agency have sufficient status within the government to allow it to carry out its mandate? Does the national child rights commission have the authority to coordinate other ministries in preparing to protect and promote child rights during crisis? Civil Society Does it have the organizational and legal mandate? Is the organization licensed with the government to care for separated children or orphans? Legislative, Regulatory and Policy Frameworks Government What regulations are in place to secure child rights during crisis? Where are the gaps? Does the military have Standard Operation Procedures for treating captured or surrendered child soldiers that respect the juvenile justice standards? Civil Society What standards do local civil society organizations apply when working with children? Human Resources Government What are the staffing needs for the agency to meet its child rights obligations? Does the Social Welfare Department have sufficient staff for outreach and monitoring activities? Does it have officers trained to address the psycho-social needs of children? What should be included in the job description of responsible officers? Is an understanding of child rights included? Civil Society Does the organization have sufficient staff to deliver services? Does the NGO have staff trained in ethical protection monitoring? Does it have enough administrative staff to ensure the functioning of the organization? Can it meet the demands being placed on it by its partners?

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
