In 2022, the Arab Network for Early Childhood (ANECD) worked on its first strategic research model entitled “The Situation of Parents and Caregivers in six Arab Countries During Crises, the Pandemic as a Model”.
In the context of strengthening ANECD component of policy-oriented research and assessment studies, comes the implementation of this first strategic research model that aims at studying the aspects of the early childhood situation in emergencies and crises in Arab countries.
This research takes the Corona pandemic as a model for the situation of parents and caregivers during the multi-dimensional crises experienced by the Arab countries. Data were collected through an online questionnaire for parents and caregivers in six Arab countries: Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Egypt, Tunisia, and Morocco.
The results of the research will be promoted in the participating countries and at the regional level. Eventually, it would contribute to the dissemination of knowledge related to the EC field and constitute a communication tool with relevant entities including ministries, associations, donors, and decision-makers. It also aims at developing new policies that meet the needs and suggestions that have come out of ANECD reports.
Please see above the full report of the research model (in Arabic) as well as a brief (in English) of the main findings and recommendations at the national and regional levels.
