Webinar: The challenges and opportunities for supporting early childhood development in contexts of crisis
October 4, 2021
Millions of children are born in conflict-affected settings each year. While conflict and displacement can have severe effects on young children’s brain development and long-term health, learning and well-being, early childhood development (ECD) services, including early childhood education (ECE), can play a powerful role in mitigating and protecting against the most harmful impacts of compounding adversity. To highlight the challenges and opportunities for supporting early childhood development in contexts of crisis, the INEE ECD Task Team is hosting a webinar highlighting three important recent contributions.
The hour-long webinar will be moderated by Bonita Birungi from ELMA Philanthropies and will include brief presentations on each of the three featured reports highlighting key findings and practical recommendations to inform actions and future opportunities. We will also reserve time for Q&A and discussion.
The Humanitarian Collaborative's Professor Lucy Bassett presents about early childhood development in emrgencies.
