“Education in Emergencies and Protracted Crises in sub-Saharan Africa. Developing Inclusive, Responsive, Resilient Education Services for All”

UNESCO/M.Hofer

UNESCO Dakar has launched the Education 2030 Brief series that aims to inform education policy makers and practitioners, including Ministers of Education and senior sector managers, of significant and important policy-related issues on education and learning in the sub-Saharan Africa, especially West and Central Africa.

Published on a regular basis, each four-page brief note draws on the past and current research and experience to present concise analyses of policy gaps, challenges, options and recommendations surrounding a specific education-related theme. The Education 2030 Brief series is intended to provide policy makers with relevant background information that helps them further explore relevant policy options in related thematic areas.

The second of this series, entitled “Education in Emergencies and Protracted Crises in sub-Saharan Africa. Developing Inclusive, Responsive, Resilient Education Services for All”, discusses the issue of education, out-of-school children and adolescents in conflict-affected areas and post-disaster situations due to insecurity within and across borders, severe vulnerability resulting from climate change, chronic poverty and underinvestment in social services. The brief calls upon policy makers in sub-Saharan Africa to address education data and planning in emergency situations, respond to the needs of marginalized groups and ensure timely coordination between humanitarian and development aid for education in order to develop more inclusive, responsive and resilient education systems.
