Reporting on Gender-Based Violence in the Syria Crisis: Training manual for facilitator

Publication

Five years on, the Syria Crisis shockwaves still reverberate across an already volatile region. Syrian women bear the full hardship of this open-ended conflict, as they pay the price of social stigma and displacement inside the country and in the five neighbouring countries, which are now home to more than four million refugees.  Almost always, they are affected by gender-based violence, which tends to increase in times of duress as familial bonds weaken as a result of forced migration and displacement.

Girlhood not mothers

Publications

When a girl becomes pregnant, her present and future change radically, and rarely for the

better. Pregnancy before a girl is physically, developmentally and socially ready jeopardizes her

right to a safe, successful transition into adulthood.

This publication presents strategic thinking and reviews the best available evidence on effective

strategies and interventions to empower girls and reduce their vulnerability to adolescent

pregnancy. Drawing from the evaluated evidence, it provides guidance on how to implement

effective programmes that operate at multiple levels and with multiple stakeholders, including

and most importantly, with the adolescent girl.

State of World Population 2015

State of World Population Report

We live in a world where humanitarian crises extract mounting costs from economies, communities and individuals. Wars and natural disasters make the headlines, at least initially. Less visible but also costly are the crises of fragility, vulnerability and growing inequality, confining millions of people to the most tenuous hopes for peace and development.
