Economic Strengthening for Child Protection & Education in Emergencies – Compendium of evidence and guidance
In October 2013, the Global Education Cluster and Child Protection Working Group held a joint annual meeting recognising that improved coordination and collaboration between the two sectors can significantly increase the impact of their work. One of the issues raised at the meeting was that cluster members felt there was little knowledge on the impact of economic strengthening (ES) programmes on child protection and education and how members could best engage with economic strengthening interventions, which are becoming increasingly part of humanitarian action.
The selection of 21 documents in this compendium include those that address ES in emergencies settings, either as evidence or guidance. The selection of documents is not exhaustive, but rather a collection of available material that addresses ES for education or child protection in emergencies.
