Shape the vision for education in emergencies

by Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE)

Summary

Education is critical for all children, but it is especially urgent for the tens of millions of children affected by emergencies, be they man-made or natural disasters. To ensure that children have access to school during crises, there must be coordination to hear the voices of those who provide these services and support their work. This project will bring together policymakers and practitioners to ensure that all children and youth have safe, quality, relevant education in emergencies.

Challenge

Half of the 57 million children out of school live in war zones. Millions more are out of school due to floods, earthquakes, etc. However, only 1.4 percent of humanitarian aid goes to education. Teachers can't be trained, supplies can't be purchased, schools can't be built. To ensure access to quality education, the international community must come together to agree on policy and commit funding. The voices of teachers, policymakers and others with first-hand experience are invaluable in this.

Solution

The 2014 INEE Global Consultation will be a dynamic global forum to develop a vision for increased funding and good policy around education in emergencies. Though critical to the discussion, practitioners, policymakers and researchers from less-developed countries are often not able to attend the event due to lack of resources. Your donation will help INEE to provide resources for these participants to attend and have their voices heard.

Long-Term Impact

Event participants will have a chance to interact with and learn from colleagues, share their experiences and contribute their ideas to the global vision. The global education in emergencies community will benefit from this large-scale collaboration and consensus building on which it can base future policy, research and action. Children in crises around the world will benefit from the attention to the issue and, hopefully, greater numbers of children in crises will get in and stay in school.
