Focus: Women,Gender and Armed Conflict

 More than two thirds of the poorest countries in the world are in conflict regions.Uprooted population groups, particularly women and children, live for years in camps, dependent on humanitarian aid and with limited access to vital resources.
 
Discrimination against women in the distribution of food, the lack of recognition of their particular needs, attacks and acts of violence or extortion in the camps perpetuate their insecurity.
