Safe Spaces: Both the CP and SGBV SWGs completed work on safe spaces in August 2014, with (i) the CP SWG completing the mapping of all CFS in Jordan and (ii) the SGBV SWG completing a policy paper on Safe Spaces for Women and Girls. Both documents are available on the Inter-Agency Information Sharing Portal.

Unaccompanied and Separated Children Trend Analysis - UNICEF presented an analysis of UASC cases managed by certain partners showing that there had been an increase in UASC entering Jordan in the first six months of 2014 as compared to 2013. The analysis also showed a strong increase in reunification rates, from 63% in 2013 to 89% in 2014.

MHPSS - The MHPSS SWG endorsed and dissemniated the Guidelines on MHPSS Projects, which aims to provide a common understanding of MHPSS projects and activities in line with global guidance, and to support the standardization of common terminology, outline interventions and principles of good programming, and serve as a reference for reviewing projects submitted for technical evaluation and/or funding appeals.

SGBV - The SGBV SWG hosted a mission from the GBV Area of Responsibility in order to field test the revised Guidelines for Integrating Gender-based Violence Interventions in Humanitarian Action. The Guidelines are an important tool in assisting humanitarian actors to meet their responsibilities for prevention and mitigation of GBV.

In August, 2014, information compilation and data sharing through the Inter-Agency GBV Information Management System (GBVIMS) resulted in the first inter-agency reports compiled for the period covering May-July 2014.
