INEE is updating the INEE Minimum Standards for Education: Preparedness, Response, Recovery (INEE MS) for the first time in over 10 years. As part of the update, INEE is committed to prioritizing the inclusivity of the standards, ensuring that they encourage inclusion of all learners, including those with disabilities. 

The IETT sees the Global Disability Summit 2022 (GDS22) as an opportunity to highlight how INEE members have been using the Minimum Standards over the years to inform their work in the field of education in emergencies (EiE), and to share how they believe the Minimum Standards could be improved to become more inclusive. In doing so, we will be able to raise awareness about the importance of this updating process among key stakeholders in the education community and, in turn, collect additional suggestions for updates to the standards.

The objective of this GDS side event is to present and share good practices on: the ongoing work being done by the INEE to review the INEE Minimum Standards with a gender and disability inclusion lens; using the INEE Minimum Standards to implement inclusive education programming in emergency contexts; and sharing INEE IETT and members’ suggestions for how to make the INEE Minimum Standards more applicable for inclusive education programs in emergency contexts in the future.
