A new tool to help countries in crisis develop an education plan

Global Partnership for Education 10 July 2017

Millions of children around the world are affected by conflict, natural disasters, complex humanitarian emergencies, internal strife, and fragility. Increasingly, the world’s out-of-school children live in countries facing war, violence and disasters. As a result, they are deprived of their right to education.

In order to maintain children’s access to quality education in these countries, the Global Partnership for Education provides targeted supports including: helping countries develop education sector plans (ESP) that reinforce emergency readiness, preparedness, and planning, providing accelerated funding to respond to crises quickly, and supporting the preparation of transitional education plans (TEP).
