At a CSIS event on 30 October 2018, UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore spoke about the need for humanitarian access during conflict, and UNICEF’s work to access vulnerable youth in conflict situations, which she called the defining issue of our time. 245 million children – equivalent to 80% of the U.S. population – live in fragile or conflict areas.   She stressed, among other things, the importance of building trust on the ground in communities and with local leaders, using innovative rapid response mechanisms (RRM) and staying and delivering services despite the danger.
