This note was presented by Children in Emergencies specialists at World Vision International Asia Tsunami Response Team. It discusses the increasing need for an improved response to children in emergencies and how World Vision has reacted to this through capacity building training to create a global register of skilled staff available for deployment to emergency situations worldwide. The successful impact this has had on practice is detailed. Implications for future capacity building practice, including increasing linkages between development and relief activities, and recommendations for other practitioners are also highlighted.
