Violence against children is prevalent throughout the world, including in the East Asia and Pacific region where the estimated annual economic loss due to child maltreatment is US $206 billion, accounting for approximately 2% of the region’s GDP (Fang et al, 2015). In recognition of the need for States to work together at the regional level, the 10 Heads of States of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) signed a Declaration on the Elimination of Violence Against Children in 2013 and adopted the ASEAN Regional Plan of Action on the Elimination of Violence Against Children (RPA EVAC) in 2016. 

The RPA EVAC serves as the 10 - year roadmap for the 10 ASEAN Member States to protect children from violence and respond to the needs of children across twelve key priority areas: Prevention, Protection, Responses and Support Services, Legal Framework, Prosecution and Justice System, Capacity Building, Research and Data Collection, Management, Coordination, Monitoring and Evaluation, Partnership and Collaboration, Review and Communication. The RPA EVAC aims to contribute towards the realization of the ASEAN Vision 2025 and the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda particularly in reaching SDG target 16.2, which calls for an end to all forms of violence against children. 

In 2019, the seventh UN High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF 2019) will address the theme, 'Empowering people and ensuring inclusiveness and equality' and within this framework, conduct an in-depth review of SDG 16 on peace, justice and strong institutions. In preparation for HLPF 2019 and in accordance with the provisions of RPA EVAC calling for its midterm review, ACWC during the presentation of the Baseline Study on RPA EVAC in February 2018 in Jakarta requested support from UNICEF EAPRO and the Office of SRSG on VAC to support them in the midterm review.

Under the guidance and supervision of UNICEF EAPRO and the COs, the service provider will develop the framework for the midterm review of RPA EVAC, facilitate national consultations at country level, and consolidate and summarize the findings in a regional report.
