In 2012, four national Non-governmental Organisations in Cyprus, Italy, Greece and Portugal entered into a partnership to develop and roll-out the IMPACT project.
The overall objective of IMPACT is to research and strengthen monitoring and protection systems against child trafficking and exploitation in these four countries. IMPACT is funded under the European Commission - Prevention of and Fight Against Crime.
The IMPACT project analyses how and to which degree child welfare and protection systems are effective to reduce the risk of trafficking and exploitation and to protect child victims and children at risk. IMPACT assesses the level of compliance of national laws, policies and practice with the needs and rights of the child as afforded under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and other international and regional standards.
