Early Childhood Development in Emergencies - Examples of ECDiE in Practice

February 9, 2024


This document provides an introduction to types of early childhood development (ECD) in emergency settings (ECDiE) programs implemented around the world. By no means a comprehensive list, it offers a snapshot of program categories to introduce those not familiar with ECDiE interventions to types of programs that can encourage ECD in humanitarian settings as well as concrete examples of each. We hope this resource can answer the question, “What do ECD programs look like in humanitarian settings?” across a spectrum of complexity and for both caregiver- and child-facing programs. The examples we have chosen come from crisis settings where possible, but sometimes come from non-crisis settings as well.
