On July 27-29, 2015, the Forum on Investing in Young Children Globally, in partnership with the Ethiopian Academy of Sciences, held a workshop in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to examine topics related to supporting family and community investments in young children globally. In addressing the specific circumstances of acute disruptions, workshop participants discussed lessons learned from examples across natural disasters, human-induced disasters, and outbreaks and suggested targeted areas for policy action aimed at strengthening investments and minimizing the negative impacts of acute disruptions on the health and well-being of children in the future. This brief summary of the presentations and discussions at the workshop highlights the major issues raised by individual workshop participants, including suggestions for future discussion and action.
