Learning resources tailored to support country offices and partners in the Ukraine refugee response
The invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces on 24 February 2022 is part of a broader global humanitarian crisis, with UNOCHA predicting 275 million people will need humanitarian assistance by the end of 2022. As a result, there is an urgent need to support individuals and organisations who are dealing with the Ukrainian crisis at a local level.
Current capacity strengthening interventions across the Ukraine Response are disparate and there has been an identified need for a more coordinated approach across organisations. A capacity strengthening task-force has been set-up to meet the short-term needs of supporting volunteers and first responders alongside developing a longer-term approach that provides a real opportunity to support locally emerging initiatives and be present where needs are greatest and we can add the most impact.
Through this coordinated approach, the task force will be in a stronger position to strengthen resilience to anticipate evolving needs and scale up capacity strengthening activities as needed.
Child protection in emergencies is about preventing and responding to violence, abuse, exploitation and neglect of children during time of emergency caused by natural and man-made disasters, conflict or other crises.
Education in emergencies means providing schooling in humanitarian emergencies including conflicts or wars, natural disasters, and health-related crises. For children in emergencies, education is about more than the right to learn.
