Evaluating Child Friendly Spaces: video resources from Nepal

Background

Child friendly spaces (CFS) have become a widely used approach to protect and provide psychosocial support to children in emergencies. In response to a commitment to strengthen the evidence base for humanitarian practice and the prioritisation of Child Friendly Spaces (CFS) as a key area for research, World Vision and Columbia University, working with Save the Children, UNICEF and others, engaged in a three-year collaborative project to document the outcomes and impacts of CFS and develop capacity for rigorous evaluation.

 A report and accompanying infographic summarize the findings of the first three years (2012-2014) of CFS research. For practitioners, an inter-agency companion document titled Tools and guidance for monitoring and evaluating CFS was developed to provide practical guidance, in-depth lessons learned, and useful tools from the evaluations.

Video resources

Focusing on Nepal, these videos provide a summary of the inter-agency research into CFS. They are a helpful companion to the research report and the tools and guidance for monitoring and evaluating CFS.  You can view the full video below, or click the links below to view shorter video clips which correspond to chapters in the tools and guidance.
