Early Childhood Development in Emergencies Manual

This manual provides guidance on how to assess need, design, and implement Early Childhood Development in Emergencies (ECDiE), supporting each of the four core components of a response: early learning and stimulating environments, positive child-caregiver interaction, protective environments, and holistic child wellbeing. It includes a brief introduction to ECDiE and is divided into two main sections. Section One explains the four components, including guidance on what to consider when designing ECDiE programmes and how to best support early learning. Section Two incorporates the core components of ECDiE to the program design cycle, focusing on the assessment, program design and implementation.
