CHILD PROTECTION IN DISASTERS AND EMERGENCIES

Child protection in disasters and emergencies refers to the prevention and response to abuse, neglect, exploitation, and violence against children in times of emergency caused by natural or manmade disasters, conflicts, or other crises. This includes all forms of physical and psychological abuse, sexual and gender-based violence, and deprivation of basic needs. The age of a child is defined, to reflect the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, as any person under the age of 18 years.
