Abstract: This ECM is meant to bring important information to organisations facing the needs of young children in emergency situations who otherwise would not have access to it. It has been compiled by organisations and agencies who have first-hand, hands-on experience in this area. We’re sharing some of the expertise of organisations specialised in dealing with children in emergency situations, present their different approaches with the diverse categories of children who fall victim to disaster, conflict or displacement. What all of the organisations have in common, however, is their aim to respond in a timely fashion to young children caught up in emergencies in order to restore some ‘normalcy’ in their lives as soon as possible.
