CRPF display stand

The Child Research and Practice Forum (CRPF) was created in 2010 with the main objectives of linking Ethiopian research, practice, and policy. So far, Young Lives has taken the lead in coordinating the forum with logistical support from UNICEF Ethiopia, and other agencies. The Forum holds a monthly afternoon seminar where research on children is presented for a number of participants followed by debates and discussion. It also publishes newsletters and annual publications for wider dissemination.

The Forum’s steering committee is composed of members from the Ministry of Women and Children's Affairs; the African Child Policy Forum (ACPF);  CHAD-ET; the Consortium of Christian Relief and Development Associations (CCRDA); the Forum on Sustainable Child Empowerment  (FSCE)Norwegian Church Aid; Oak foundationSave the ChildrenUNICEF; and Young Lives.

The CRPF produces quarterly newsletters and regularly produces papers of members' research.
