Desk Review of Programming Guidelines for Adolescents and Youth in Emergencies
Adolescents and youth as a distinct group are often overlooked during humanitarian crises, with their unique concerns and needs seldom prioritised. This publication provides an overview of existing programming guidelines for adolescents and youth in emergencies and is a contribution to the goals of the Compact for Young People in Humanitarian Action. It specifically contributes to Action 1 of the Compact, which aims to promote and increase age-and gender-responsive and inclusive programmes that contribute to the protection, health and development of young women, young men, girls and boys within humanitarian settings. This new resource for youth programming is a result of a collaborative inter-agency undertaking by the INEE Adolescents and Youth Task Team (AYTT), the Multicultural Youth Advocacy Network (MYAN Australia), the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) and RET International.
