Overview: Separated children are among the most vulnerable of all children affected by emergencies. Having lost the care and protection of their families and caregivers just when they need them most, these girls and boys are at increased risk of physical and psychological harm, abduction, trafficking and unlawful recruitment or use by armed forces or armed groups, sexual abuse and exploitation, and permanent loss of identity. Moreover, they may be burdened with adult responsibilities far beyond their years. This Field Handbook reinforces the common commitment to the principles and standards set out in the guiding principles, providing up-to-date and detailed operational guidance for all actors concerned with the welfare and protection of unaccompanied and separated children.
