Rebuilding resilience in a changing world: Conflict and crisis sensitive approaches to planning and programming for education systems
Mainstreaming conflict and disaster risk reduction measures into education policy, planning and implementation remains limited and is often addressed on an ad hoc basis. It is therefore crucial to identify the challenges as well as to learn from countries which have effectively integrated risk reduction measures into their education systems. In this symposium, senior policy makers from ministries of education will first explore good practices and remaining challenges to integrating crisis-sensitivity and disaster risk reduction into their education systems. This will be followed by presentations from development partners to share each agency’s experience in developing frameworks and tools to support crisis-sensitive planning and implementation.
