Noteworthy practices: early childhood development in emergencies

Young children are extremely vulnerable in emergency situations. In a field which typically focuses on the three pillars of humanitarian assistance—food, water, and health—individuals working in emergencies often see a need to do more. They want to do more for very young children and their families, and they seek real-life examples of successful programming that can be adapted and put to use in their own contexts. Noteworthy Practices: Early Childhood Development in Emergencies presents practices of note from the Philippines, Kyrgyzstan, and Swaziland with examples from practitioners who have worked with young children and are now well placed to share lessons learned, challenges, and success stories with others working in disaster risk reduction and emergency planning and response.
