Glossary Term

Inter-sectoral Linkages

Inter-sectoral linkages relates to the interaction between two or more sectors, e.g. education, health, food security/nutrition, shelter, and protection. In the context of the education sector, these linkages are normally actions taken in partnership with other sectors outside the education sector. Examples are psycho-social support in education (with child protection), the planning of a school in an IDP camp (with Camp Coordination and Camp Management), etc.
