Foundations for an Egypt Child Rights Index

EGRI for Children:
Foundations for an Egypt Child Rights Index as instrument for evidence-based child-friendly public policies

Abstract: This purpose of this paper is to develop the foundation of an instrument that that facilitates tracking progress and reporting against international development frameworks and human rights instruments to which Egypt is signatory. Building on previous work done on human development and child well-being indicators globally and in Egypt as well as initiatives supported by UNICEF in various countries in Latin America, it proposes a conceptual framework for an Egypt Child Rights Index. The Index is tool that can be used both as a technical monitoring instrument and a policy instrument that contributes to child-friendly and evidence-based public policies as well as more transparent and direct access to information.
After an introduction of the purpose of the paper and the questions it aims to answer, section 2 describe the major international development frameworks and importance to monitor these commitments. Then section 3 describes the characteristics and potential of composite indices as technical monitoring tools as well as policy instrument. Section 4 sets the foundation for a human rights-centred Egypt Child Rights Index (EGRI). The dimensions, indicators and mathematical formula for the EGRI will be discussed in sections 5 through 8. Requirements and options for each of these characteristics will be presented and advantages and disadvantages discussed. At the end of each section, a proposal for the EGRI will be made. The last section 9 will conclude with a summary of the proposal for the Egypt Child Rights Index and will indicate further work required to apply the concept and make it a genuine monitoring and policy tool.

The Delphi Technique: A Methodology to Support the Development of a National Set of Child Well-Being Indicators

The Delphi Technique: A Methodology to Support the Development of a National Set of Child Well-Being Indicators

The aim of this report is to provide an overview of the Delphi Technique and its application in developing indicators of child well-being. This research contributed to the development of a National Set of Child Well-Being Indicators for Irish Children.

Measuring Child Well-Being: An Inventory of Key Indicators, Domains and Indicator Selection Criteria to Support the Development of a National Set of Child Well-Being Indicators

Anne-Marie Brooks and Sinéad Hanafin

June 2005

The main objectives for compiling this inventory were as follows: 1. To identify indicators currently in use, and routinely published across different countries; 2. To identify indicators that are well-recognised and accepted across different countries; 3. To identify indicators that have been recognised by experts and tested for scientific soundness; 4. To identify the key domains and/or frameworks used to conceptualise child well-being across different countries; 5. To identify the key criteria used to guide the selection of child well-being indicators across different countries; and 6. To provide a resource for others who may be embarking on a similar type project. This research contributed to the development of a National Set of Child Well-Being Indicators for Irish Children.

Child Rights Situation Analysis

A thorough situation analysis or assessment should form a basis for planning of the programs/projects and strategies. It involves collecting relevant information to enable realistic assessment of what needs to be done in order to improve the lives of children. It is the essential first step towards identification of key issues, establishing priorities and making appropriate choices – whether in an emergency or in more stable situations.
