The UN Secretary-General’s Independent Accountability Panel (IAP) for Every Woman, Every Child, Every Adolescent invites your insights and contributions to inform our next report on the theme of accountability for women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health in humanitarian settings. This will be our fourth report, following the 2018 report on private sector accountability, the 2017 report on accountability to adolescents, and the inaugural report of 2016. Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 April 2019.
Scope of the Report: Women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health in humanitarian settings, and their related rights and well-being more broadly, including on gender equality and education issues. The report is expected to cover migrant and refugee crises, with a focus on protracted crises in conflict-affected settings (excluding environmental disasters). The IAP will focus on assessing strengths and shortfalls by applying its conceptual framework across the full accountability cycle of monitor, review, act and remedy from a rights, gender and equity-centred approach.
How to Submit Your Contributions: Please see attached further details and guidance on submitting your contributions by the deadline of 1 April 2019. We invite inputs from all stakeholders – representatives of governments, parliaments, human rights institutions, the UN System, development cooperation partners, the private sector, civil society and academia.
We look forward to hearing from you! Thank you from the Independent Accountability Panel.
