The Inter- agency Child Protection Information Management System (IMS), consists of three main elements: a set of standard forms used for the registration, documentation and assistance of separated and unaccompanied children, CAA FAG and other vulnerable children affected by emergencies ; a database; and a set of confidentiality protocols or guidelines to inform data protection and the sharing of information on these vulnerable children. The IMS, as it is recognised today, was first established in 2004/5 by IRC, Save the Children and UNICEF following a review of other information management systems set up by separate agencies responding to child protection needs in different emergencies. The initial aim of the IMS was to improve the co- ordination and collaboration of the different agencies so as to improve the quality of emergency child protection programmes, and quicken agencies’ responses to children’s needs. Its main target programmes were FTR and DDR programmes.
