Natural hazards and conflicts can devastate education systems. When faced with multiple risks – such as insecurity and severe weather – the stakes are even higher. Today, many governments, humanitarian, and development partners recognize the need to use evidence-informed risk reduction strategies to address threats head on, to prepare, and secure the right to quality education for all. Yet this requires reliable data – and especially for forcibly displaced persons, who are among the most marginalized in the world.
As a response to this challenge, the UNESCO International Institute for Education Planning (IIEP-UNESCO) is launching, in collaboration with NORRAG, a specialized online course: “Using data and information for crisis-sensitive educational planning”. The course provides in-depth training on the issues, tools and strategic approaches to crisis-sensitive educational planning; risk prevention; and reduction.
During eight weeks, participants will gain the technical skills to use data – from gathering, processing, to analyzing – for planning education in crisis contexts.
- Duration: 3 May to 25 June (8 weeks), with a preliminary 10-day phase beginning on 21 April to be acquainted with the virtual platform.
- 12 hours per week.
- Course fees: 1,600 USD for an individual | 1,400 USD for individuals in a team of four.
Application deadline: 5 March 2021
