Back-to-School Guide: Evidence-Based Strategies to Resume EiE and Post-Crisis Transition

"UNICEF Back-to-School Guide: Evidence-Based Strategies to Resume Education in Emergencies and Post-Crisis Transition" was created from data and analysis gathered about Back-to-School programmes from 55 countries in all seven regions in which UNICEF operates, summarized in the companion piece, Analysis Report of Back-to-School Initiatives (1994–2012). The Analysis Report synthesizes information, lessons learned, challenges, and similarities and differences among the BTS programs over the past two decades drawn from evaluation and donor reports, proposals, and interviews with field staff. The Guide also incorporates recommendations from UNICEF’s Core Commitments for Children in Humanitarian Action, and reflects the Minimum Standards developed by the Interagency Network for Education in Emergencies to align BTS actions to the recognized global standards for UNICEF and for humanitarian action in education.
