Advancing nurturing care in humanitarian settings: Overview of workshops in Arab countries
An advocacy brief published late 2020 entitled Nurturing Care for Children Living in Humanitarian Settings (available in Arabic and Spanish) provided guidance to decision makers on adapting existing efforts given the specific needs and challenges of context-specific crises. Following the release of the brief, the Arab Network for Early Childhood (ANECD), International Rescue Committee (IRC), Save the Children, UNICEF and World Health Organization (WHO) came together to disseminate the brief and foster country-level action. A global working group was formed in early 2021 comprising of representatives from the same five organizations at global and regional levels. Together, they supported five national task teams to organize multisectoral and multistakeholder workshops between October and December 2021. This report describes the process for organizing the workshops, reflects on cross-cutting issues and ideas that emerged across the workshops and outlines a set of recommendations for continuing to advance nurturing care in the five contexts as well as in other contexts affected by crisis.
