The war in Syria, one of the worst humanitarian crises the world has faced since World War II, continues to have devastating and tragic consequences for its people. It is also having an increasingly destabilising impact on the wider region, through the displacement of people, the spread of terrorism, the exacerbation of political and sectarian differences.
Provide a desk-based review of the factors influencing gender equality and women’s empowerment in Lebanon focusing on achievements, trends, enabling and constraining factors.
(Beirut) – Many refugees in Arsal, a border town in northeast Lebanon recently cleared of armed groups, face pressure to return to Syria, Human Rights Watch said today. Some have already returned to Syria because of the harsh conditions in Arsal. A recent Human Rights Watch visit to Arsal found widespread lack of legal residency, restrictions on freedom of movement, and fear of seemingly random arrests during army raids.

27 million children out of school in conflict zones – UNICEF
NEW YORK, 18 September 2017 – Some 27 million children are out of school in conflict zones, UNICEF said in a report released today. Focusing on the importance of education for children who have been forced from their homes by conflict and disasters, the report notes that failure to provide learning opportunities for uprooted children has profound consequences for individuals and nations.
Here are some salient facts from the report:
The quarterly dashboard summarizes the progress made by partners involved in the Lebanon Crisis Response and highlights trends affecting people in need.
In Iraq, WFP began a digital skills training for 100 Syrians in Arbat refugee camp. These beneficiaries are receiving training in order to improve their chances of finding employment.
WFP made transfers to more than one million beneficiaries in Turkey. 863,000 vulnerable refugees received multipurpose cash assistance through the Emergency Social Safety Net (ESSN) and 142,000 Syrians received e-food voucher assistance in camps. The ESSN aims to assist more than one million people in 2017.
One year on from the historic United Nations summit for refugees and migrants, the international community has failed to make meaningful progress towards meeting the goals of the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, Oxfam said today.
The Declaration, first adopted last September, reaffirmed the responsibility of all nations to refugees, and laid out a two-year deadline for countries to develop and agree on a “global compact” that would make these commitments a reality. But 12 months on, there has been no improvement in refugee crises around the world.
Social Stability partners provide ongoing support to municipalities to strengthen their capacity to mitigate tensions created by the socio-economic shock of the crisis.
Part of this support includes implementing small (community support) and medium (basic services) projects to alleviate resource pressure and provide tangible benefits to local communities.
While CSPs and BS projects can cover a wide range of interventions, from equipment of public institutions to provision of garbage trucks or construction of sport facilities, they all have the following components:
Lebanon has more than 300 homework support groups, staffed by volunteers and attended by 2,500 refugee children.
Schoolchildren are not known for their love of homework. For Syrian refugees living in Lebanon, there are additional reasons not to do it.
First, there is the language. In Lebanon, the curriculum is taught in French and English, while students in Syria learn in Arabic.
World hunger is estimated to be on the rise again as conflict and human-induced disasters as well as natural disasters are contributing to setbacks in food security. This year’s The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World (SOFI) warns that the long-term declining trend in undernourishment seems to have come to a halt and may have reversed. Meanwhile, though progress continues to be made in reducing child malnutrition, millions of children are still stunted and wasted, and rising overweight and obesity are a concern in most parts of the world.
