ERICC & INEE Webinar “Towards education for all: Strengthening data systems in conflict and crisis settings”

Education Research in Conflict and Protracted Crisis (ERICC) and the Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) are hosting a webinar event on strengthening data systems in education in conflict and crisis settings, to help drive evidence-based educational decision-making and the design of policies and programs in response to the needs of children. 

Data is often acknowledged as a priority, but many challenges remain, including difficulties in collecting reliable data due to insecurity and capacity barriers, representation of affected groups in a data system, collaboration and data alignments to policy and program interventions, accessibility of information to non-data specialists, and lack of funding for relevant data initiatives, among many others. 

This event aims to gain more contextual and nuanced understandings of the current state of data and data systems amidst conflict and crisis, and convenes an in-depth discussion on data in refugee education, emerging findings on EiE data systems from cross-country and political economy analyses, and the use of data to inform educational policy and interventions, as well as support from the international community. 

Join us on Wednesday 28th February 2024, 1:00pm – 2:00pm UTC.
