Protection of children, invisible victims of armed conflict and COVID-19
By Save the Children, Belgium, the European Union and Niger
This event will focus on approaches that guarantee that children affected by armed conflict do not remain invisible in the post-COVID-recovery & ensure that children’s rights are respected and their needs addressed. Based on children’s real stories, this event will highlight how the combined effects of the COVID-19 pandemic & armed conflict have exposed children to greater threats, exacerbated vulnerabilities & worsened the protection needs of children, & discus how to address it.
