Good Practices Brochure: Adolescent Girls

Adolescents and youth are a vital positive force in emergency preparedness and response. While they have wide-ranging capacities they also have unique needs, and too often adolescents are lost between programming for children and programming for older adults. In particular, adolescent girls are disproportionately affected by crises. Compared to boys, girls are less likely to be able to meet their basic needs.

This brochure provides practical guidance on including adolescent girls in humanitarian programming and coordination by highlighting four case studies that illustrate good practices and examples in humanitarian settings in Asia and the Pacific.

This Good Practices brochure was produced by the Asia-Pacific Gender in Humanitarian Action Working Group, co-chaired by UN Women, CARE International and OCHA. This work has been made possible by supplementary funding from the Government of Japan.
