ARNEC has made available the summary of the scoping study “From Most Vulnerable to Most Valuable: A scoping study putting young children at the heart of environmental and climate actions”. This one page document captures the impact of climate change and environmental degradation on the five components of nurturing care.
This study recognises there is insufficient attention given to the immediate and longer term needs of children in climate change and environmental actions. It leverages the Nurturing Care Framework for ECD to better understand and communicate the impacts of climate change and environmental degradation.
This report summarizes the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on nurturing care for early childhood development based on the latest available data and proposes priority actions and interventions required to safeguard this critical period and ensure children’s optimal development during the COVID-19 pandemic. The report also showcases UNICEF Country Office initiatives supporting early childhood development across the five components of nurturing care.
