Applying our collective experience and wisdom to the COVID-19 emergency

blog iconAs part of the INEE response to the COVID-19 crisis, we are developing a blog series designed to provide INEE members with accessible and practical information that helps them continue their work to ensure education for all learners affected by crisis.

The guiding point of this blog series is: This is not our first emergency. 

The COVID-19 crisis is larger than any the education in emergencies (EiE) community has ever faced — its breadth and impact are truly global — and it compounds existing crises. But our experience is rich, our network wide, our standards robust, and our tools applicable in this unprecedented emergency. We are committed to using the collective wisdom gained over the past few decades to respond together to this global emergency.

The Ask: We are looking for authors to share concise and practical articles about EiE tools and lessons learned that can be applied to the COVID-19 emergency. We want articles that are more practical than theoretical, more action-oriented than advocacy.

Articles can be written by practitioners, government counterparts, teachers, researchers, or any member, and can be submitted in English, Arabic, French, Portuguese, or Spanish. Articles will be vetted and lightly edited by the INEE Secretariat before going live - not all submissions will be published by INEE. Click to read some simple instructions for writing a blog post.

Submissions and questions should be directed to
