Minimum Standards for Education in Emergencies
Preparedness, Response, Recovery
The Standards are designed for use in emergency preparedness, response and recovery, and humanitarian advocacy. They are applicable in a wide range of situations, including natural disasters and armed conflicts. The standards give guidance on how to prepare for and respond to acute emergencies in ways that reduce risk, improve future preparedness, and lay a foundation for quality education. They provide flexibility in responding to needs at the most important level – the community – while providing a harmonized framework to coordinate the educational activities of national governments, other authorities, funding agencies, and national and international agencies.The Minimum Standards cover five domains: Foundational Standards; Access and Learning Environment; Teaching and Learning; Teachers and Other Education Personnel; and Education Policy.
