It argues that the proposed gendered biased nature of the existing and proposed provisions on nationality and citizenship right in Nepal is unjustifiable. Because it perpetuates discrimination between men and women with the idea of reinforcing patriarchy in the background. It has recommended an urgency to redouble the efforts in making provisions to ensure gender equality and prevent the statelessness of the children in the new Constitution of Nepal.
Exposure to conflict affects children in several ways, ranging from direct killings and injuries, to more subtle, yet persistent and irreversible effects on schooling, health, nutrition, future opportunities and well-being. Children’s educational attainment is particularly compromised by exposure to violence. Conflict-affected countries include over 20% of all children of primary school age, but account for around half of all out-of-school children of primary school age (UNESCO, 2011, 2013).
Just one year after ‘Super Typhoon’ Haiyan hit the Philippines, tremendous progress has been made. The speed and scale of the humanitarian and early recovery response were made possible by the generosity of donors, strong partnerships with the Government and the amazing resilience of the people of the Philippines. While UNICEF and our partners have made a strong start, there is a lot of work ahead to achieve the shared goal of restoring economic and social conditions to at least pre-typhoon levels, with a higher level of disaster resilience.

Over the past decade, the child-friendly schools (CFS) model has emerged as UNICEF’s signature means to advocate for and promote quality education for every girl and boy, particularly in fragile contexts. The main principles of CFS models are ‘child-centredness’, ‘democratic participation’, ‘inclusiveness’ and ‘protection’. The theme of ‘democratic participation’, which states that as rights holders, children and those who facilitate their rights should have a say in the form and substance of their education, has not been explored fully in the CFS model in conflict-affected contexts.
