Research on Challenges faced by Adolescent Girls in Emergencies - Report

Document Type: Reports and Assessments
Document Language: English
Goal: To be able to identify and respond to the needs of adolescent girls effected by the Syria Crisis, both within Syria and in the surrounding countries. Objectives for 2014: • Adapt and field-test the rapid assessment tool for adolescent girls in emergencies. • Identify geographical areas within each country to pilot and record information about the movements of adolescent girls during different stages of the response. • Develop pilot programs for adolescent girls as a result of the information collected and focus group discussions analyzed. Purpose of this assessment Before a program begins, planners must first understand what girls are in their program area and approximately how many girls fall in each category. National and sub-national data can be useful for broadly understanding basic information about girls, but often more local, detailed information is unavailable. The assessment tool will help program planners enumerate and map households in which girls live in their program catchment areas.
