2014 IN REVIEW
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.
Three months on from first Nepal quake, children still at risk
UNICEF provides $15 million in cash transfers to most vulnerable families
KATHMANDU, Nepal, 25 July 2015 – Three months after Nepal’s April 25 earthquake and its aftershocks, children continue to face multiple risks as their families have been pushed deeper into poverty and they remain in need of aid.

From day one of its existence as an independent nation, South Sudan grappled with the enduring legacy of years of conflict. Risen from a decades-long struggle for its freedom, the world’s youngest country nevertheless saw a tremendous wave of hope among its people, unleashed by South Sudan’s independence in July 2011.

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.
1. Background of the Study
Although humanitarian actors have long emphasized the benefits of emergency preparedness in high-risk humanitarian contexts, little evidence has been collected to date to demonstrate the impact of early preparedness investments on eventual humanitarian response. This study is one of the first research initiatives to quantify the cost and time benefits of a large and diversified investment “portfolio” of emergency preparedness interventions undertaken by UNICEF and WFP in 2014, with support from the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID).
The main objectives of the review are 1) to be able to confirm the results of the assessment about the state of the education sector carried out in March 2015, 2) to show trends with regard to three main indicators which have come up in almost all of the field studies done by Cluster members, namely: percentage of schools functioning, representation of the different categories of teacher in the schools (tenured teachers, contract teachers, community teachers) and 3) variation between the number of pupils enrolled in schools before the crisis (2011-2012 …
Ce document est un résumé du rapport sur les résultats de la recherche du premier scan de conflit trimestriel au Burundi, mené dans le cadre du projet Impore Iwacu de Search for Common Ground (SFCG) avec le partenariat du Fonds des Nations Unies pour l'enfance (UNICEF).
This document is a report on the research findings from the first Burundi quarterly Conflict Scan conducted for the Impore Iwacu SFCG – UNICEF project. Building on the approach used by SFCG programming around the world, the Conflict Scan used a fast and lightweight methodology with the aim of improving Conflict Sensitivity and Do No Harm principles for Search for Common Ground (SFCG), United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and partner program interventions in Burundi.
