BACKGROUND

Within the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action, Save the Children and UNICEF co-lead the Working Group for the Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (CPMS). The Working Group aims to strengthen quality and accountability in humanitarian child protection programming through the promotion, implementation, and institutionalization of the CPMS.

The CPMS are an essential tool to ensure that children of all ages, gender and ability who are affected by crisis are protected and their well-being and healthy development is supported. The CPMS set out key actions to ensure children’s protection in preparedness, prevention and response are applicable across all humanitarian contexts, including disasters, refugee crises, internal displacement, conflict, and infectious disease outbreaks.

On behalf of the Alliance’s CPMS Working Group, Save the Children Sweden is looking for a video production company to create two videos according to the following brief.

OBJECTIVES AND AUDIENCE

The aim of these two educational videos is to raise awareness and explain the content of two of the standards of CPMS Pillar 4: Standards to work across sectors:

· Standard 21: Food security and child protection

https://handbook.spherestandards.org/en/cpms/#ch007_002

· Another CPMS Pillar 4 standard: To be decided.

The videos will highlight the value of cross-sectoral collaboration. Their focus will be on how humanitarian actors, both specialized on child protection as well as on food security and another humanitarian sector (to be decided), can strengthen child protection and well-being by implementing the CPMS standards.

The primary audience of the video are child protection practitioners and humanitarian actors who work in food security and another sector at the country, regional and global level.

The video will be disseminated via the Alliance’s website and social media, and through global, regional and country-level capacity building events and trainings.

SCOPE OF WORK

Create two videos with the following specifications:

  • Length: Around six minutes in English, with a maximum of seven minutes.
  • Format: Voice narration over video footage (B-roll) and animated visuals inspired on the CPMS handbook, plus 2-3 interviews of humanitarian practitioners.
  • Languages: Both videos to be done in four languages: English, Arabic, French and Spanish.

The videos must be consistent with other videos in the same series, namely:

· CPMS Pillar 3: https://youtu.be/XFg08_n4A3A

· CPMS Pillar 4: https://youtu.be/YG5YqbP4ePI
