Under a contract with UNICEF Armenia, Coram International will be providing 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 will be 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 will undertake 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 will develop a CRM methodology for the HRDO, including procedural guidelines and monitoring tools. The methodology will include indicators and targets for ongoing and annual monitoring and reporting, as well as procedural guidelines setting out roles, responsibilities and relevant processes. The project will also include providing capacity building to HRDO staff including training on the methodology and its tools.
