Guidance notes for Educational Planners: Integrating Conflict and Disaster Risk Reduction into Education Sector Planning

These Guidance Notes put forward strategies on how to mainstream conflict and disaster risk reduction measures in the education sector planning process. They are intended for Ministry of Education officials, especially in planning departments at central level, but are also useful for other education actors that support ministries in the planning process.IIEP's mission is to strengthen the capacity of countries to plan and manage their education systems through training, research and technical cooperation. Additionally, IIEP has developed expertise in the field of education in emergencies and disaster preparedness. Its programme on education in emergencies and reconstruction has produced a Guidebook for Planning Education in Emergencies and Reconstruction, as well as a series of country specific analyses. They concern the restoration of education systems in countries as diverse as Afghanistan, Burundi, Kosovo, Palestine, Rwanda, Southern Sudan and Timor-Leste. In partnership with the Inter-agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) and as a member of the INEE Working Group on Education and Fragility, IIEP has co-published a series of studies on education and fragility in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cambodia and Liberia including a synthesis study.
