Early Childhood Development
This list of resources on Early Childhood Development are part of the larger Learning for Peace project which produced dozens of briefs, reports, case studies, guides, and research products, and compiled many other relevant resources related to the link between education and peacebuilding.
Toxic stress and malnutrition in early childhood are directly linked with harmful psychological processes and interpersonal relations, and decreased economic productivity in adulthood. These effects exacerbate social and economic risks for society. Although the international community recognizes that social services can contribute to restoring peace and stability, there is currently limited understanding of how ECD services can support the prevention of violence and the promotion of peace.
