INEE Minimum Standards for Education, 2024 Edition

Since 2004, the INEE Minimum Standards for Education: Preparedness, Response, Recovery (INEE MS) have provided a framework for inclusive and equitable quality education. The purpose of the handbook is: 

  • To improve the quality of education preparedness, response, and recovery;
  • To increase access to safe and relevant learning opportunities;
  • To ensure that the actors who provide these services are held accountable 

The INEE MS are designed to be applicable to crisis response in many different situations, including emergencies caused by conflict, by natural hazards such as those induced by climate change, and slow- and rapid-onset crises in both rural and urban environments.
