Measuring Separation in Emergencies

The Measuring Separation in Emergencies (MSiE) project, funded by the USAID Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance, and implemented by Save the Children and Columbia University in association with other key academic partners including Johns Hopkins University, aims to strengthen emergency response programming for unaccompanied and separated children through the development of practical, field-tested tools to enhance the assessment of the scale and nature of separation in emergencies. Phase I included piloting a population-based estimation tool and community-based surveillance system in North Kivu, the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2014. The findings from a household study done in the Democratic Republic of Congo indicate the potential for population-based estimation of separation to be replicated in emergency settings to inform funding appeals and programmatic response.
