Youth (aged 15 - 29) comprise 30% of the total population in Palestine, and all children and youth under the age of 29 comprise 50% of the total Palestinian population.

Although the rapidly increasing youth population can cause extreme stress on already underdeveloped infrastructure (education, health, social services, urban infrastructure, housing, and access to economic opportunity), a large youth popuation can also be seen as "missed opportunity".

GBV in Palestine

The Gender Based Violence Working Group (GBV-WG), chaired by UNFPA, has undertaken two mapping activities of GBV interventions in Palestine in the years 2013 and 2014. Both mapping reports informed the UNCT Gender Task Force and provided data on the overall GBV work, without distinction between development and humanitarian interventions. In 2015, the GBV working group evolved to operate as one of the humanitarian working groups of the Protection Cluster and assumed the responsibility to report on humanitarian GBV services with clear distinction from development interventions. The current mapping report will compile an updated data on both types of GBV interventions with clear distinction between them and will provide observations on results, identifying gaps and challenges and offer recommendations to the GBV-WG and GBV service providers for future action. Please contact Mr. Nishan Prasna Krishnapalan (krishnapalan@unfpa.org) to get excel sheets of both Annexes 3 and 4: Annex 3: 4Ws Matrix for Development GBV Interventions Annex 4: 4Ws Matrix for Humanitarian GBV Interventions

At 10, a girl arrives at a vulnerable point in her life. She must negotiate a tricky transition to adulthood, with its rapid changes in body and brain, and dramatic shifts in family and social expectations. Although risks abound for both girls and boys, gender discrimination makes these worse for girls in almost every way.  Public policies often focus on young children or older adolescents, failing to adequately manage the potential risks 10-year-old girls might face.If her rights are not well protected, through appropriate laws, services and investments, the chance to bloom in adolescence and become a fully fledged adult forever slips away.The world has already done well in many ways for the 10-year-old boy. It is past time to do equally well for the 10-year-old girl.
