May 2015 – The 1612 Monitoring and Reporting Mechanism (MRM), which documents six grave violations perpetrated against children in situations of armed conflict, is a UN-led process that performs best when it enjoys the support and participation of civil society actors. Nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), whether local or international, have been contributing to the MRM by monitoring and documenting grave violations, responding to the needs of victims, and by advocating for stronger action to protect children. However, the scope of their engagement can vary due to a number of factors including security constraints, limited knowledge of how the mechanism works and insufficient financial and technical capacity. The Resource Pack on NGO engagement in the MRM offers a range of tools designed to help civil society organizations and humanitarian partners define whether and how they should engage with the MRM in a way that will ensure a safe and meaningful participation that strengthens both their programs and the mechanism itself.
