Please find attached, hot off the press, an assessment carried out by the CPWG on the child protection needs inside Syria. This was one of the most complex and intensive pieces of assessment work we have undertaken so far, and a remote data collection methodology was used in order to overcome some of the challenges of data collection in the current context and maximise the coverage of the assessment. A desk review component also took into account the findings of other processes monitoring child protection issues inside the country. As a result, the assessment report is therefore one of the most robust and comprehensive accounts of the child protection situation available to humanitarians and policy makers to date.
