JOINT OPEN LETTER TO THE PACIFIC ISLANDS FORUM LEADERS AND OBSERVERS IN THE CONTEXT OF AUSTRALIA’S ABUSIVE OFFSHORE REFUGEE PROCESSING POLICY
August 30, 2018 - Children in East Africa are increasingly exposed to significant risks as a result of different kinds of disasters across the region. Millions of children are constantly on the move as political instability and conflict is increasingly driving them out of their homelands. At the moment, the region hosts the largest number of forcibly displaced persons on the African continent.
Two years in, World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) stakeholders have made important strategic and operational shifts to better anticipate and plan for crises and increased investments in analyzing and planning to reduce disaster risks. A significant amount of these shifts have been made by Member States.

2.5 million girls in eastern Africa in urgent need of protection
More than 2.5 million girls have been forced to flee their homes across eastern Africa and are in urgent need of protection, a new report from World Vision has found.
Twenty-one humanitarian and human rights organizations respond with dismay to the Dutch Parliament’s approval of the EU’s new asylum plans to offshore asylum protection. With a joint appeal, they ask the government for a humane asylum policy, in line with international law.
All over the world, children are living lives with no clear future after being forced to flee their homes. Driven out by conflict, extreme poverty, droughts, food shortages, or political turmoil, they and their families live in refugee settlements, with host communities who themselves struggle to cope, in the shadows, in between laws and in the middle of chaos.

For Immediate Release
Washington, DC - As Secretary of State Rex Tillerson prepares to testify on the administration’s budget, a leading group of humanitarian, development and global health organizations are releasing new data that shows just how devastating these proposed cuts to the United States’ foreign aid budget would be to millions of people in the poorest countries.
The analysis finds that under the proposed budget:
Brussels, February 28, 2018: We, the undersigned civil society and UN organizations, are concerned by proposals now under consideration as part of the ongoing reform of the Common European Asylum System which would allow the use of coercion to take the fingerprints and facial images of children. The new EURODAC proposal being considered by the European Commission, Council and Parliament expands the purpose of the current database of asylum applicants to facilitate the identification of “irregularly staying third country nationals” through the use of biometric data.
Violence against children affects more than 1.7 billion children every year, in every community and every country. Children are being subjected to violence in their communities, schools and homes – the very places they should feel the most secure and safe. Violence is devastating for children, affecting their health, obstructing their education and diminishing their chances for a life free from poverty and discrimination. The impact of violence goes beyond the individual children, affecting families and communities, slowing economic development and eroding human and social capital.
- Red Hand Day falls as more than 600 children are released from armed groups in South Sudan
- Children are lured into armed groups with false promises of food, education, protection
- Everyone can help reduce the use and impact of conflict on children
February 12 – Children as young as 6 are being pulled into adult wars in ways that are unimaginable given all the promises that have been made to help them, says World Vision this Red Hand Day.
World Vision Learning Report explores adaption and innovation in fragile operating contexts
Learning Report captures World Vision’s learnings through operating in fragile and conflict-affected contexts.
Learnings have been captured through real-time evaluations and case studies in more than 10 fragile and conflict-affected contexts.
Continual learning, adaptability and revision is required when operating in these contexts.
Since launching our rapid scaleup of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) programmes in 2010, World Vision has been learning and adapting as rapidly as we have been scaling up. This annual report not only celebrates the immense progress we have made in the 2017 fiscal year, it also shares the remarkable things we have learned this year on our journey of continuous improvement.
On 14 and 15 December EU Heads of State are expected to discuss the internal and external dimension of the EU’s migration policy. Instead of proposing policies that represent only the lowest common denominator between member states, the EU should put forward a principled agenda that addresses migration in both a humane and effective way. European leaders should leverage the attention to migration and displacement to promote global policies that are deeply embedded in a strong humanrightsagenda.
