This interagency document (introduced in a READY featured webinar series) provides practical guidance to actors in humanitarian and development contexts on the adaptations and considerations needed to support children who are either currently in alternative care or are going into an alternative care placement during the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is currently available in English and Arabic; a French translation is in progress.
