Save the Children’s Emergencies Quality and Accountability Framework (2012) helps to achieve the organisational goal that Save the Children’s emergency response will be timely, at appropriate scale and scope, providing quality technical programming efficiently, effectively, safely and securely for the most vulnerable children and their families. Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning (meal) standards and sector quality standards underpin the framework. the meal standard on stakeholder participation reflects application of Save the Children’s child rights programming approach: Country Office (CO) projects/programmes include the appropriate, relevant and meaningful participation of children, partners and other stakeholders in all aspects of monitoring and evaluation.In developing these guidelines, we have built upon key findings from an organisational review of children’s participation in humanitarian programming. The guidelines suport emergency preparedness efforts to strengthen staff and partners’ capacity to support meaningful children’s participation, and include tips and and tools to enhance meaningful children’s participation in the emergency response and in transitions to relief, reconstruction and peace-building processes.
