The data presented is based on the Report of the Secretary General report on Children and Armed Conflict from September 2010 to December 2014. The data is assessed to underrepresent the severity of the conflict on children and the number of incidents by the parties to the conflict.

The small victories which motivate us
Message from Koenraad Vanormelingen, Representative UNICEF Mozambique
Scoping study to examine knowledge of CPMS 14 among child protection and juvenile justice practitioners
Children are always among the most vulnerable in an emergency. Emergencies both exacerbate pre-existing protection concerns and create new ones. In times of crisis, girls and boys face increased risk of all forms of violence and exploitation.
One potentially life-saving area of child protection that remains poorly understood and underfunded in humanitarian contexts is justice for children.

Case Study, UNICEF, Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, 2015
Population-Based Survey on Peace and Education: Uganda Case Study, conducted by Harvard Humanitarian Initiative in partnership with UNICEF, assesses factors affecting resilience, social cohesion and security as elements of peacebuilding in Uganda, and the interaction of education with those factors.
The Resilience Analysis Unit, led by the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and supported by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the United Nations Development Programme, the United Nations Children’s Fund, and the World Food Programme, carried out the present context analysis with the aim of better understanding resilience to food insecurity and malnutrition in Karamoja, Uganda.
The Cluster Approach
The cluster approach was established in 2005 following an independent Humanitarian Response Review, to address gaps and to increase the effectiveness of humanitarian response by building partnerships. Thus, the cluster approach has been implemented for 10 years now.
URGENT ACTION NEEDED TO TACKLE CHILD LABOUR CAUSED BY SYRIAN CRISIS: SAVE THE CHILDREN AND UNICEF
AMMAN, 2 July 2015 - The conflict and humanitarian crisis in Syria are pushing an ever increasing number of children into exploitation in the labour market, and much more needs to be done to reverse the trend, according to a new report released by Save the Children and UNICEF.
A child’s chance to survive and thrive is much greater in 2015 than it was when the global community committed to the MDGs in 2000.
Data show significant progress in areas such as child survival, nutrition, motherto-child transmission of HIV and primary school enrolment, among others. These are impressive achievements, but they are only part of the story.
On 27 May, the Nepal Ministry of Finance issued a decision: “Approval of top up cash transfer for early recovery for vulnerable population affected by the Earthquake”. This marks the beginning of a crucial intervention.
