Guidance on Coordinated Anticipatory Action in Education

The purpose of this document is to define the Global Education Cluster’s (GEC) approach to Anticipatory Action. Understanding how education clusters can coordinate inter-agency efforts on Anticipatory Action in education will enhance sector preparedness, support the provision of rapid and quality education in emergencies, strengthen our education advocacy work, and contribute to nexus-focused programming.


This document presents our current understanding of Anticipatory Action in Education and will be used as a starting point for discussion, planning and preparedness with country clusters and key partners through the GEC’s Task Team for Preparedness and Anticipatory Action. It will be updated as we learn of emerging work in this area and capture additional examples, good practice and opportunities to collaborate.
