The Measuring Separation in Emergencies (MSiE) are documents that are implemented by Save the Children and Columbia University in association with other key academic partners such as Johns Hopkins University.

These pilot summary reports aim to strengthen the emergency response programming for unaccompanied and separate children through the developmental of practices.

In addition, the concise pilot reports on meeting the child’s developmental need and providing the best environment for them. Identifying supportive and protective care for a separated child and tracing them back to their family as fast as possible are the two most important protection involvement that humanitarians can make in an emergency.

The documents report on the field testing of population based estimation and community based surveillance system in North Kivu in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

A French translation of assessing child separation in emergencies is provided.
