We are thrilled to share a new INEE Technical Note on Education during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

This 20-page publication, designed for practitioners, is a living document that will be updated in response to changes in the learning and wellbeing needs of children, adolescents, youth, teachers, caregivers and other education personnel affected by COVID-19.

The Technical Note relies on the INEE Minimum Standards for Education: Preparedness, Response, and Recovery as the global framework for delivering quality education in emergencies (EiE). There are five sections of the Technical Note, aligned with the various phases of response to the pandemic. Key actions, suggested tasks, and practical resources are highlighted throughout.
