In 2018, Coram International was awarded a contract with UNICEF Armenia to provide technical assistance to the Child Rights Unit of the Human Rights Defender’s Office in Armenia (HRDO) to improve the efficiency, professionalism and impact of the Office in implementing its child rights monitoring (CRM) mandate. The aim of the project was to develop a methodology that can be used by the HRDO to support it in conducting independent, effective and ongoing monitoring of children’s rights in the country. Under the project Coram International undertook a review and analysis of the existing mandate, structure, procedures and capacities (in terms of knowledge, skills and human resources) of the HRDO in law, policy and practice. Based on this review and in close consultation with the HRDO, UNICEF and other relevant stakeholders, the team developed a CRM methodology for the HRDO, including procedural guidelines and monitoring tools. The methodology included indicators and targets for ongoing and annual monitoring and reporting, as well as procedural guidelines setting out roles, responsibilities and relevant processes. The project also included providing capacity building to HRDO staff including training on the methodology and its tools.
