  1. A desk review of existing literature on the South East and East Asia sub-region, with a particular focus on issues pertinent to the child protection in emergencies sector. This desk review included documents both internal and external to Save the Children and where relevant they are referenced throughout this report.
  2. Key informant interviews with child protection and & child protection in emergencies global and regional experts to discuss child protection gaps and priorities across the South East and East Asia sub-region.
  3. An online survey for regional and national child protection and child protection in emergencies practitioners, where individuals were invited to self-asses their existing capacities and highlight child protection priorities for the region.

This report presents a comprehensive breakdown of the findings from the above strands of research.
