L’engagement de l’UNICEF en faveur de l’équité - donner une chance équitable à chaque enfant, partout, et notamment aux plus défavorisés – repose sur la conviction qu’il s’agit d’un principe juste et sur la preuve que cela fonctionne en pratique. Ce rapport démontre qu’il est nécessaire de combler les inégalités persistantes en matière d’équité, parce que le cycle des inégalités n’est ni inévitable ni insurmontable et parce que le coût de l’inaction est trop élevé.
Le programme pour l’équité
A total of 221,375 Burundian refugees and asylum-seekers have arrived in the neighbouring countries of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), the United Republic of Tanzania, Rwanda, as well as Uganda and Zambia since April 2015.
Countries in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) experience a range of natural hazards, including earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, tsunamis, landslides, volcanoes, forest fires, and droughts. El Niño and La Niña, extreme phases of natural climate cycles, periodically exacerbate the impacts of hydrometeorological events in the LAC region. Environmental degradation and poor land-use management also increase populations’ vulnerability to natural hazards.
Foreword by the Humanitarian Coordinator
It is almost five years since violence, conflict and instability spread to almost every corner of Libya. The crisis continues to deepen, with over three million people affected, nearly half of Libya’s population. The Libyan people have suffered tremendously and are now exhausted as they continue to live in fear for their safety and future. Many have lost their homes, livelihoods and loved ones.

Humanitarian needs & key figures
Ongoing conflict is devastating Yemen. Humanitarian partners now estimate that 21.2 million people – or 82 per cent of the population – require some kind of humanitarian assistance to meet their basic needs or protect their fundamental rights. The severity of needs among vulnerable people has also intensified across sectors. Major needs include the following:
1. Protection of Civilians

Universal Children's Day: Give children on the move a fair chance
Inequity, violence and rights abuses are driving forces behind the refugee and migrant crisis in Europe
GENEVA / BELGRADE, 20 November 2015 – Nearly 14 million children and adolescents in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan face war, conflict and injustices every day, fuelling the current refugee and migrant crisis in Europe.
UNRWA Commissioner-General Pierre Krähenbühl opened the meeting of the Advisory Commission (AdCom) on 16 November in Jordan, saying that following last summer’s financial crisis, UNRWA has set the stage for new approaches to old challenges. He also stated that “UNRWA is not just any international organization, but is an agency with a soul,” providing crucial services to a community that today still represents almost 40 per cent of the world’s protracted refugees. Mr.
Refugee and migrant flows in Europe are at an unprecedented high – so far this year, almost 793,000 people have arrived by sea. Some 158,000 of them are children.
The month of October has seen an increasing number of families with children and babies, unaccompanied children and children with disabilities.
Between 19 and 31 October, more than 12,440 children have rested and played in UNICEF child-friendly spaces in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Serbia and Croatia.
As Uganda joined the rest of the world to celebrate the mental health day, World Vision has pledged to continue addressing issues of availability and access to mental health services.
While speaking at a symposium to commemorate the World Mental Health day on 10th November 2015, the Associate Director for Health at World Vision Lorna Muheirwe said that Uganda is still guilty of writing off people with mental health problems and would rather attribute their illness to other diseases making many to miss early diagnosis and treatment.
The initial emergency response in an emergency context is to set up safe spaces for children and adolescents to participate in educational and recreational activities, a place where they can gain a sense of normalcy. ACTED, supported by UNICEF, provides safe havens known as Child Friendly Spaces and Youth Friendly Spaces for internally displaced children in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.
