This book provides an analysis of Early Childhood Development (ECD) in South Sudanese refugee camps in Uganda, making the case for the design and implementation of programmes for early childhood development in emergency situations. The author illustrates the current place of ECD in the humanitarian landscape and the environment in which South Sudanese refugees in Uganda currently live, combining child and human development perspectives to underpin the importance of ECD in emergencies. Developing an ECD tool specific to the cultural context and emergency situation, the author examines the outcomes of an ECD programme focussed on refugee children and provides evidence for increased investment into ECD in emergencies. Contributing to the evidence base for Early Childhood Development, this book will be of interest to students, scholars and practitioners conducting research on Early Childhood Development, Education and or humanitarianism in developing countries.
