Through Save the Children's role as Co-Convener of the Early Childhood Care and Development in Emergencies Working Group, the organization is partnering with others who also serve young children and their families in emergencies to ensure that children's critical needs are addressed.
To date, Save the Children has provided guidance on early childhood care and development programming in emergencies in the areas of child-friendly spaces, research initiatives, minimum standards, and principles and practices (including case studies). By networking with others in the domestic and international early childhood emergency response community, Save the Children is identifying and addressing gaps in knowledge and tool development, and is advocating to move the issue forward in the broader educational and emergency response arenas.
