Guidance Note and Training Manual for Remote Service Delivery to Survivors of Violence in the Arab States Region
This toolkit is designed to support women-led civil society organisations (CSOs) in the Arab States region to strengthen their capacity to deliver remote services to survivors of violence against women and girls (VAWG).
Humanitarian needs continue to grow with nearly 132 million people in need of assistance in 2018, due to conflict, persecution, and natural disasters. The average humanitarian crisis now lasts more than nine years, and periods of forced displacement more than seventeen.

The breakdown of protection mechanisms and destruction of essential services and economic structures in crises hits the already marginalized hardest.
Around the world, young women are working to prevent violent conflict, recover from crises, and build peaceful, tolerant communities, yet most peace and security interventions are blind to the needs and contributions of young women. This paper examines the diverse roles that young women play in these contexts and offers recommendations for ensuring their meaningful inclusion and participation in building and sustaining peace.
