The purpose of the ECD Task Team / ECCD in Emergencies Working Group is to analyze and synthesize information gathered from research, case studies, successful practices and tools from the fields of ECCD and Emergencies and to use this information to:

  • Develop tools and publications and to disseminate this information for use by global actors and stakeholders in ECCD and Emergencies,
  • Advocate for improved investments, policies, and commitment to action related to young children in Emergency and Transition situations,
  • Inform the current gap in understanding that ECCD programming in Emergency situations needs to include the diverse needs of children in each phase of  the emergency, transition and normalcy,
  • Inform capacity development  of ECCE and Emergencies’ stakeholders to effectively act for children in these settings.
