DTM Field Companion for Child Protection (CP)
DTM worked with Global CP Area of Responsibility to identify information needed for analysis and response that DTM can collect through the methodologies that DTM field teams use. They also jointly developed short guidance and presentations that can help DTM and Partners in the field better work together to collect and use data for sectoral and inter-sectoral response.
Information commonly needed for CP are included in the DTM Field Companion for CP, formatted as a Data Analysis Plan: it includes suggested phrasing of questions and options for reply as well as descriptive analysis and possible use of data for each information need.
DTM Field Companion for CP is available in excel https://dtm.iom.int/dtm-partners-toolkit/field-companion-excel and in pdf https://dtm.iom.int/dtm-partners-toolkit/field-companion-pdf . In the pdf version, one information need is detailed in each page, while in the excel version, one information need is detailed in each row. The information is identical on both versions.
DTM and Global CP Area of Responsibility colleagues developed joint guidance on how to use DTM data for CP. The detailed “CP AoR guidance on DTM for CP”, the “PIM matrix for Child Protection” overview and the presentation on DTM for Children on the Move are available at https://dtm.iom.int/dtm-partners-toolkit/child-protection.
