Results from the INEE Country Focal Points Initiative, 2021-2023

Humanitarian Sectors - Education

As we welcome a new cohort of INEE Country Focal Points (CFPs), we want to recognize the valuable contributions of the CFPs who were part of the initiative between 2021-2023. 

From the beginning of the initiative in 2021, CFPs played a pivotal role in supporting networking and communication among INEE members in their countries. As a result, INEE became better known among EiE stakeholders in CFP countries and the overall membership of the network grew.

The following are a few of the results and achievements of INEE CFPs between 2021-2023:

  • INEE membership increased by an average of 52% in CFP countries
  • CFPs organized and led more than 100 EiE events, trainings, and presentations
  • CFP countries were routinely in the top 10 countries with respondents to INEE global surveys
  • CFPs authored, co-authored, or supported eight (8) blogs
  • CFPs started and moderated 15 INEE Community of Practice channels and WhatsApp/Telegram groups
  • CFPs organized 87 INEE Meet-Ups in their countries between 2021-2023
