The Asia-Pacific Regional Network for Early Childhood (ARNEC) in partnership with Save the Children and UNICEF EAPRO has embarked on a scoping study led by the University of Wollongong, Early Start Australia, to inform its advocacy for ensuring a clean, safe and sustainable environment for young children. 

The scoping study aims to share the evidence from the Asia-Pacific region and the insights from experts and partners around the world exploring the deep interlinkages between climate change, environmental degradation and early childhood development (ECD) to support our goal of enabling ECD systems and services for young children become more climate resilient, adequately funded, and their value better understood and considered by policy makers and climate scientists.
