Promoting access to quality, safe, and relevant education for all persons affected by crisis

INEE Minimum Standards Handbook

The INEE Minimum Standards for Education: Preparedness, Response, Recovery is the only global tool that articulates the minimum level of educational quality and access in emergencies through to recovery, providing good practices for coordinated action by education practitioners and policy makers in governments and international and national agencies. 

The Minimum Standards express a commitment that all individuals—children, youth and adults—have a right to education. The aim of the Handbook is 1) to enhance the quality of educational preparedness, response and recovery; 2) to increase access to safe and relevant learning opportunities for all learners, regardless of their age, gender or abilities; and 3) to ensure accountability and strong coordination in the provision of education in emergencies through to recovery.
