PNG Nutrition Report

Almost half of all Papua New Guinean children have stunted growth from chronic malnutrition and it is taking an enormous toll on the country’s economy.

Frontier Economics further estimates malnutrition could be the underlying cause of up to 76% of deaths of children under five, well above the global average of 45%. This report outlines cost-effective solutions proven to reduce child undernutrition, with high economic and social returns on investment.

Date: 20/06/2017

Save the Children and the Asia Pacific Refugee Rights Network (APRRN) has recently published Unlocking Childhood containing detailed research into the immigration detention of asylum seeker and refugee children in this region. The report aims to highlight the need for governments in this region to abandon the harmful practice of detaining children for immigration related purposes, and instead adopt alternatives to detention consistent with the rights and needs of children.  Through documenting the practice of immigration detention of children, the research reveals that asylum seekers and refugees in neighbouring countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand are not adequately protected as a matter of law or practice and remain extremely vulnerable and face many serious hardships.

Counting Pennies

Date: 25/05/2017

Category: Child protection, Education, Health

Every child deserves to grow up in a safe, peaceful, nurturing and enabling environment. But this is not the case for millions of children across the world that experience violence every day. Violence includes more than just physical abuse, but also things like forced labour, neglect and child marriage. The consequences are devastating for children, their communities and society as a whole. Violence against children erodes the very foundation of stable societies and threatens future sustainable and inclusive economic growth. This is why global leaders have made ending violence against children in all its forms a priority for transforming our world.

This report outlines the practical lessons learned by Plan International and Save the Children about child-centred community-based adaptation (CC-CBA) to climate change.

Through a series of case studies, the report details some of the specific examples of how project participants have engaged with CC-CBA activities and consolidates best-practice lessons and recommendations for practitioners and donors.

For the past six years, children in Syria have been bombed and starved. They have seen their friends and families die before their eyes or buried under the rubble of their homes. They have watched their schools and hospitals destroyed, been denied food, medicine and vital aid, and been torn apart from their families and friends as they flee the fighting. Every year that the war goes on plumbs new, previously unimaginable depths of violence against children, and violations of international law by all sides.
