INEE 2015 Annual Report

2015 was a big year for INEE! It was a year that saw the bright culmination of a decade and a half of advocacy at several global events. Since the 2000 World Education Forum in Dakar, in which INEE’s roots lie, the network has worked to ensure that the right to education is fulfilled. With the World Education Forum 2015 taking place in Incheon, Korea, INEE marked 15 years since it was first conceived. The adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals in September 2015, and the subsequent Education 2030 Framework for Action, with the importance of education in emergencies highlighted throughout both forums, validated the important advocacy contributions INEE has made over the years. There is no doubt that education in emergencies is gaining attention like we have never seen in the past, and INEE continues to play an important role in amplifying the voices of its now more than 12,000 members, and reminding those new to the discussion of the important work that has gone before: the INEE Minimum Standards, the Global Education Cluster, the many tools and resources that many of you have contributed to developing, to name just a few. Using this unprecedented global awareness and momentum, INEE actively engaged its members in 2015 in the strategic Global Consultation on a “Common Platform for Education in Emergencies” (launched as Education Cannot Wait in 2016). We believe INEE is needed now more than ever to help organizations and individuals build trust and come together as a vibrant and diverse community where we can combine efforts, strengthen partnerships, share knowledge, and amplify voices. We invite you to read this 2015 Annual Report with a sense of pride of what we have achieved. And we look forward to the years ahead with your continued, active engagement in making a positive difference for countless children, youth, and adults living in crisis and adversity.
