The 'Minimum standards for education: Preparedness, Response, Recovery' now available in Nepali language

The UNESCO Office in Kathmandu has translated the ‘Minimum standards for education: preparedness, response, recovery’ into Nepali language. It will now benefit the educational agencies, relevant government organizations, and key stakeholders in rural areas in Nepal on enhancing accountability and predictability and improve coordination among partners, including education authorities.

The book which was published by the Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) with a view to wider circulation among the agencies and cluster groups working on education in emergency holds higher relevancy for ensuring quality education during the time of emergency . 

The INEE handbook expresses a commitment that all individuals-children, youth and adults- have a right to education. The handbook contains 19 standards, focusing on ensuring quality, coordinated humanitarian response by meeting the educational rights and needs of people affected by disaster. The standards articulate the minimum level of educational quality and access in emergencies through to recovery. The handbook can be used as a capacity-building and training tool for humanitarian agencies, governments and local populations to enhance the effectiveness and quality of their educational assistance. 

The translated Nepali version of the publication can be downloaded from http://unesdoc.unesco.org/images/0022/002276/227675NEP.pdf
