The goal is to help young people to recover from the traumatic effects of emergencies by providing practical tools that support sport and play programming thus promoting healthy physical, social, emotional and cognitive development. Such targeted attention to youth is essential to the recovery and rebuilding of communities struck by disaster.

It is hoped that the application of these resources will provide further empirical evidence to support the use of this methodology as an effective tool to strengthen resilience in post-emergency settings. The toolkit has the added appeal of supporting mainstream approaches to emergency response programming.

Although the toolkit offers recommendations and guidelines for planning, implementing, monitoring and evaluating sport and play programs in postemergency settings, it is not a rigid programming model. The guidelines are intended to be flexible enough to enable adaptation to the specific context in which sportbased programs will operate.
