INEE Minimum Standards Indicator Framework

This framework provides a way for education in emergency (EiE) stakeholders to demonstrate alignment with and progress towards the INEE Minimum Standards. Until now there has been no common set of indicators mapped against each standard; this tool fills that gap.

The indicators are not intended to be compulsory; they are examples of how projects and activities might demonstrate how the INEE Minimum Standards are being employed within their programming. Most donors and organizations have their own sets of indicators and requirements, and INEE is not advocating to replace these. This framework draws from existing indicator lists (including Education Cannot Wait (ECW), European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO), the Global Education Cluster, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), UNESCO, Teachers in Crisis Contexts), and proposes new indicators where there are gaps.

The INEE Minimum Standards Indicator Framework has been designed with flexibility and contextualisation in mind. It can be used by implementers and donors alike, at any stage of the program cycle. The intention is for EiE stakeholders to adapt the framework for their own use and context, while still working under the overall framework of the INEE Minimum Standards. Each user can decide what information is most relevant to collect and share for their own use, or for reporting to donors and/or emergency-affected communities.
