Tdh also makes employers and local communities more aware of the risks of exploitation. Mechanisms for identifying, guiding and monitoring the most vulnerable children (orphans, migrants, etc.) are put in place.

Building resilience to conflict through food security policies and programs: Evidence from four case studies - 2020 Resilience Conference Paper 3

preview

Food insecurity at the national and household level not only is a consequence of conflict but can also cause and drive conflicts. This paper makes the case for an even higher priority for food security–related policies and programs in conflict-prone countries. Such policies and programs have the potential to build resilience to conflict by not only helping countries and people cope with and recover from conflict, but also contributing to preventing conflicts and supporting economic development more broadly—that is, helping countries and people become even better off.

Access to education an added challenge for refugees in Egypt

Report
IRIN

CAIRO, 8 April 2014 (IRIN) - As the number of Syrians in Egypt rises, refugees say it has become increasingly difficult to find places for their children in already overstretched government schools.

In addition, refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in Egypt complain of unaffordable school costs in private and public schools, bureaucratic enrolment procedures, and a growing atmosphere of suspicion, xenophobia and discrimination in the classroom.
