INEE Framing Paper 3 - Whole People, Holistic Approaches: Cross-Sectoral Action and Learning

Through six case studies from across a range of sectors, this paper explores innovative programmatic approaches, with a particular emphasis on the role of youth participation. From the case studies, it draws out key impacts and findings, summarizes lessons learned for the education sector, and suggests recommendations for holistic inter-sectoral action. Initial recommendations for areas of action within this topic include creating channels for increased coordination on youth issues between IASC Clusters and other relevant actors at both global and national levels. The paper calls for the systematic participation of youth in emergency preparedness, response and recovery in the education sector in order to improve the quality, effectiveness and relevance of programming. Finally the dearth of data regarding the impact of emergencies on youth populations is highlighted.
