Welcome to the ARC resource pack
The ARC resource pack is an interagency collaboration. These materials can be used or reproduced without fee or prior permission, but the source should always be referenced as the ARC resource pack. The materials are not for resale.
Funding for the ARC resource pack has been provided by the European Commission Humanitarian Aid Department and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency.
The ARC resource pack provides an essential collection of information and training material to strengthen people’s capacity:
- to tackle the root causes of children’s vulnerabilities
- to build effective child protection systems for use in emergencies and long-term development
- to ensure that no activities inadvertently compromise children’s rights or safety.
The pack comprises 14 modules in two groups:
In each case, the study material is the main text of the module.
