This is the third in a series of VCIES EiE Data webinars hosted by INEE. This series shares CIES panels adapted to virtual webinars on: 

Recent education in emergencies initiatives to improve data collection, use, and management for education in crisis-settings, as well as new research conducted on this area, are contributing to an evidence-base on the gaps and needs of national level actors. With such gaps identified and a significant level of momentum around improving education in emergencies data systems globally, now is an ideal time to hold discussions around and act on how to adapt education data systems to conflict and crisis settings. However, it is important to recognize that data, particularly relating to education in emergencies, is not wholly benign, it is highly sensitive and at times contentious. Discussions will necessarily consider issues around privacy and data protection, considering that those in crisis-affected contexts are often displaced persons and vulnerable.

In this panel, global actors from FHI 360, NYU, UNESCO, the Global Education Cluster, and the Education Cannot Wait Fund examine how education data systems and measurements – both national and humanitarian – can be adapted to improve the quality, interoperability, availability, and accessibility of education data. Furthermore, the panel will seek to situate the discussion on this topic in the context of the rapidly changing planet and explore what challenges and solutions exist in addressing data gaps in education and strengthening existing data systems in this context.
