‘Investment for education in emergencies: a review of the evidence’ – Susan Nicolai (Overseas Development Institute)
This talk will discuss the findings of a rigorous literature review that was carried out to answer key questions around four key areas concerning education in emergencies (EiE):
- Is education seen as a ‘high priority’ amongst emergency affected populations?
- To what extent is schooling disrupted by different types of emergencies? And how are different groups diversely affected?
- What are the economic and human costs of emergencies on education? And what are the returns to investment in EiE?
- What is the nature of funding for EiE?
The review also indicates what future research is needed to better understand how to improve education in emergencies.
