Early Childhood Peace Consortium – ECPC
Early Childhood Peace Consortium, (ECPC) was launched in 2013 to highlight the well·being of Children and Families who can be sustainable agents of change for peace building.
This consortium is chaired by Ms Rima Salah, who served as a Member of the United Nations High-Level Independent Panel on Peace Operations (2014-15), and as Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary·General in the Central African Republic and Chad.
Dr. Salah has had a distinguished career with UNICEF serving twice as Deputy Executive Director.
The mission of ECPC is To create a legacy of sustained peace by drawing on the transformative power of early childhood development by building a global movement that values the role of young children and families as agents of change in peace building.
The Early Childhood Peace Consortium brings together global leaders in effective practice, new and emerging knowledge, finance, media, philanthropy and international policy to create a legacy of sustained peace, drawing on the transformative force of early childhood development (ECD). A multidisciplinary Yale University team has joined forces with these leaders to form the ECPC, a loose affiliation of global partners from multiple sectors, institutions and organizations engaged in peace building in early childhood development.
