About the Event.
The National Child Protection Working Group (NCPWG) is a national child protection mechanism that was established in September 2009 within the Institutional framework of the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development (MGLSD) following the phasing out of the Inter agency Sub-committee (IASC) on Child Protection Sub-cluster coordinated by UNICEF under the humanitarian response in Northern Uganda. Under the overall leadership of MGSLD, the broad mandate of the NCPWG is to enhance linking, information sharing and learning among child protection stakeholders for a more coordinated child protection response in the Country. Under the learning aspect, in 2017 CPWG secretariat conceptualized and co-convened with MGLSD the first-ever national learning forum on child wellbeing. The 2020 Learning Event is the fourth in sequence since 2017. This year’s Learning Event hosted by NCPWG in collaboration with MGLSD will be held online due to observance of the COVID-19 SOPs from the Ministry of Health.
