[Spanish Version] Guidebook for Planning Education in Emergencies and Reconstruction
The Guidebook for planning education in emergencies and reconstruction aims to support educational authorities in providing equal access to quality education for children affected by conflict or disaster – which can also provide a unique opportunity to reform an education system. Intended primarily for ministry of education staff, it will also serve educational planners and practitioners at all levels, as well as UN staff, NGOs and donor agencies. Each chapter identifies strategies or policy options that have already proven successful in different contexts. This revised edition of the Guidebook (published initially in 2006) reflects some of the positive developments in terms of engagement of the international community in education in emergencies. Chapters on Ethnicity/political affiliation/religion, Children with disabilities, Learning spaces and school facilities, Early childhood development, and, Coordination and communication have all been updated. New chapters on Prevention of conflict and preparedness for disaster and Technology have also been added. The volumes cover the following thematic areas: General overview, Access and inclusion, Teachers and learners, Curriculum and learning, Management capacity.
