INEE is very pleased to share the Iraq Minimum Standards for Education in Emergencies, now available in English, Arabic, and Kurdish

Based on the INEE Minimum Standards for Education, this contextualized tool defines effective, quality, and inclusive education practices that support the provision of safe, quality, and relevant education for all children and youth in Iraq and surrounding countries. 

The Iraq Minimum Standards for Education in Emergencies was developed for and by the Ministry of Education of Federated Iraq (MoE Central), the Ministry of Education of the Kurdistan Regional Government (MoE KRI), school directors, teachers, international non-governmental organizations, local non-governmental organizations, and UN agencies.
