The joint WFP-IOM report highlights the close interconnection between hunger, conflict, migration and displacement, which has been further aggravated by COVID-19. The study explores the impact of the pandemic on the livelihoods, food security and protection of migrant workers households dependent on remittances and the forcibly displaced, including unaccompanied and separated children. Using the latest available data, the report highlights food security trends in some of the major migration and hunger hotspots across the world. The key findings have informed joint recommendations put forward by both agencies to mitigate the immediate negative effects on mobile and displaced populations, while preparing the pathway to recovery.

In recent years, global frameworks such as UN Convention on the Rights of the Child,
the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and
Members of Their Families, and the Global Compact on Refugees, have helped develop
a more supportive legal and policy environment for protecting children on the move. At
the same time, evidence on what works and what does not work in protecting children
on the move, and why, has not been synthesized across a range of groups (refugees,
internally displaced children, migrant children, returnees, children moving with and
without families, and in different settings). This report provides an assessment of the reviewed literature and its key findings, and
UNICEF Innocenti's Children and COVID-19 Library is a database collecting research from around the world on COVID-19 and its impacts on children and adolescents.
