HREA will evaluate programming aimed at improving justice for children in Indonesia, Mongolia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines and Timor Leste

Cambridge, 22 December 2005 -- Improving justice for children - including juvenile justice laws, policies and procedures ľ is one of the most critical strategies for building a protective environment for children, one that safeguards them from exploitation and abuse. At the request of UNICEF, HREA will evaluate the project "Strengthening Capacity Building and Networking for Juvenile Justice". This project consists of six components: activities in five countries (Indonesia, Mongolia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines and Timor Leste) and the Regional Office's supporting function. It is the continuation of the Dutch Thematic Fund-supported regional project implemented in 2002-2004.

The comprehensive evaluation by HREA will assess the focus and design of the project, take stock of the activities undertaken, and draw lessons to further develop and improve UNICEF's response to juvenile justice.

Determining the effectiveness and efficiency of the activities, the evaluation will also allow lessons to be drawn as to what UNICEF's contribution in the broader context of juvenile justice should be.

It will also help develop UNICEF support and a more programmatic approach to juvenile justice and strategy development at the regional and country levels.
