Analysis of international aid levels for early childhood services in crisis contexts

Moving Minds Alliance

Young children growing up in crisis settings are vulnerable to a range of compounding risks that threaten their long-term development and wellbeing. Evidence shows that quality early childhood services for young children and their caregivers can provide a buffer against these risks and help children reach their developmental potential. Despite the growing need for investment in early childhood development in emergencies (ECDiE), no methodology currently exists to track and report on donor commitments and funding. This report aims to help fill that gap by estimating funding going to ECDiE in recent years.
