3.1.3 Rights-based approaches to programme design Child rights-based humanitarian and transition programmes help improve programme outcomes by ensuring that the rights of children and their families are realized, and that their capacity to claim those rights, and the capacity of duty bearers to meet their obligations to fulfill those rights are met. The results of the rights-based analysis (outlined above) should be used to inform the planning and design of response. Programme activities should include provisions to address and respond to the most vulnerable and/or discriminated against, and must aim to prevent and protect against rights violations. They should also adopt a multi-sectoral holistic approach that addresses the immediate, as well as underlying and root causes of rights gaps. Programmers should ensure that the key elements of rights-based programming are considered in the design and implementation of response as summarized in the checklist below. 3.1.4 Rights-based approaches to programme implementation Rights-based approaches to programme implementation include efforts to ensure that children and young people, when possible, are involved in decision-making within the programme, and that regular consultation with children and communities is conducted throughout to help ensure that gaps are identified early on and can be addressed.

Child Participation in Programme Design In Iraq 2003 Save the Children undertook consultations with children, teachers, parents, locally elected leaders, and staff at the Ministry of Education as part of its education assessment in order to inform its education response. These discussions, combined with a series of vulnerability assessments incorporating a livelihoods analysis, led Save the Children UK to target the areas of Al Shulah and Al Daura in Baghdad. In Indonesia , children engaged in the planning, assessment, and mapping stages of emergency response. For instance, internally displaced children were actively involved in developing Save the Children’s inter- agency IDP resettlement model, which has since been adopted by the Government, international NGOs, donors and the UN – a clear example of children’s voices translating into real power.

Building the capacity of local as well as national authorities as well as civil society organizations to implement humanitarian and transition initiatives, and working to develop sustainable responses is also critical to a rights-based approach. 3.1.5 Rights-based approaches to programme monitoring Rights-based programme monitoring should take into consideration not only the outputs of a humanitarian and/or transition programme but also the process and outcomes. Rights-based outcomes can be expressed as positive changes in the lives of people affected by crises. They may concern the ending of specific threats to children or reducing their vulnerability to the threats.

    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.
