Plan International (2016) Child and Adolescent Friendly Spaces. Providing Child Protection and Education in Emergencies: A Case study from the Nepal 2015 Earthquake Response

This case study describes child- and adolescent-friendly spaces set up by Plan International after the 2015 Nepal earthquake. Lessons learned include the importance of early involvement of parents and caregivers in the activities to reinforce awareness raising and protection of children; pre-positioning of materials such as tents and play materials; and the importance of intensive capacity building and support to the community volunteers, who chose to offer their time as part of their own way of coping with the disaster.
