Integrating Early Childhood Development and Violence Prevention: A landscape analysis: Networks, campaigns, movements, and initiatives

While there is considerable programmatic and strategic overlap between the areas of early childhood development and violence prevention, progress in achieving deeper and more sustainable impact by building synergy across the two has been limited. This report by CPC Learning Network faculty affiliate Dr. Cassie Landers, supported by the UBS Optimus Foundation and the Global Alliance for Children, shares findings from a mapping exercise that sought: to identify key networks, campaigns, movements and initiatives; to highlight gaps and opportunities; and to propose recommendations for moving forward.

To better understand the landscape and support integrated efforts among the early childhood development (ECD) and violence prevention (VP) communities, the UBS Optimus Foundation, through the Global Alliance for Children, supported this mapping exercise to: identify key networks, campaigns, movements, and initiatives; highlight gaps and opportunities; and propose recommendations for moving forward. The methods used included semi-structured interviews of key informants; desk review of research reports and publications; and identification of global and national networks, campaigns, and social movements.
