AusAID Management Response- Independent Child Protection Policy Review 2011
In 2008, AusAID implemented a child protection policy. The Policy requires a review every three years. This report is AusAid's response to that report.
AusAID is the first bilateral donor and Commonwealth agency to implement such a policy, reflecting the government’s commitment to protecting children from all kinds of abuse in the delivery of Australian aid. The Policy review, every three years, is to assess its relevance and effectiveness of its implementation and provide practical recommendations for improvement. The first independent child protection policy review was conducted by Global Child Protection Services (GCPS), between November 2011 and March 2012. This report is AusAid's response to that report. As the recognised leader in child protection in international development, AusAID welcomes the review findings. AusAID agrees or agrees in-principle to all of the recommendations and has already implemented many of the recommendations.
