A Time of Transition

A Time of Transition: Adolescents in humanitarian settings
4 October 2016

This report looks at adolescents during emergencies. It analyses available data and looks at the work of Plan International and other organisations to strengthen work with and for adolescents during emergencies.

Plan International UK and Plan International commissioned this report to clarify and develop a conceptualisation of adolescence during emergencies and to summarise the data available on adolescents in humanitarian settings. It also maps out the work Plan International are doing with and for adolescents in humanitarian action, identifies trends in the work of other agencies and proposes recommendations for Plan International’s future work.

The report provides evidence, useful programming tips and key recommendations to strengthen our targeting of adolescents during emergencies.
