Before doing anything else, please download the guide and read it through.



What the CPRA is and what it is not?

CPRA provides:


a snapshot of urgent child protection related needs

a comprehensive assessment or a surveillance mechanism

urgently required, “good enough” information for programming and advocacy purposes

a tool to produce information that is generaliz-able to the entire population

a stepping-stone for a more comprehensive needs assessments

meant to inform long-term programming



What does the toolkit provide?

  • A series of model tools that can easily be adapted to new contexts and used;
  • Advice on how to plan and implement a rapid assessment;
  • A tool that greatly facilitates data entry and analysis .

Introduction to the toolkit

Technical Considerations

    • Sampling: preferred sampling method in rapid assessments is “purposive” sampling;
    • Unit of Measurement: preferred unit of measurement for CPRA is “community”;
  • Site Report:Site report is an integral part of the methodology used in CPRA toolkit. Each site will produce a single report that reflects all the data collected in that specific site.

Lessons Learned

  • Steps should be followed: In many of the instances that the tool has been used, the steps outlined in the guide are not followed;
  • No Picking and Choosing: Often times, only the Key Informant Interview questionnaires is used and the rest of the tool is dismissed;
  • Common methodological mistakes:
  • - No sampling strategy is used;
  • - Unit of measurement is not defined and used;
  • - The KI tool is used for FGDs and to interview children;
  • - Group interviews are mistaken for FGDs;
  • - Children are interviewed using the CPRA tool;
  • - Too much data is collected and site reports are not used to minimize the data-entry burden.
