IMPACT proposes to complement measures that address situations of exploitation with measures that are targeted at addressing the underlying socio-economic and structural factors that create an environment in which children are vulnerable to exploitation.
From a policy making perspective, this has three implications:
The intent of this third session is to clarify the necessity of a wider integration and connection among cross-cutting elements and specialised policies for sustainable interventions of prevention and protection enabling a holistic approach to the person outside the emergency setting.
In relation to policies and strategies primarily developed to respond to certain categories of children, IMPACT aims to identify the relation between interventions dedicated to specific problems and specific categories of children with a transversal approach. This approach facilitates the identification of the most conducive elements to the effective and sustainable realizations of these interventions.

Introduction to the session agenda, objectives and expectation, along with the presentation of assumptions using as background material the information included in the Chapters 2c and 5.d of the IMPACT Report 2013.
