Promoting access to quality, safe, and relevant education for all persons affected by crisis

Discussion Series: Evidence-Based Financing for Education in Emergencies

This discussion series intends to promote discussion and explore the linkages between financing and evidence for education in emergencies (EiE). In this series, EiE experts are invited to engage with relevant questions as they relate to intersections between increasing EiE financing and strengthening the EiE evidence base.

This blog series hopes to foster dialogue around questions such as:

  • What is evidence in the field of EiE, and how should evidence inform funding decisions?
  • How are implementers expected to build in funding for research and evidence when they can barely cover program implementation costs?
  • How should we balance the frontline urgency for answers with the deliberation and time needed to generate robust evidence?
  • How can we improve connections between research, policy, and practice.
  • How can we increase evidence uptake, and what role should academics and universities play in strengthening the evidence base?
  • What are the most sustainable forms of education financing?
  • Indicators and data are becoming very important elements for monitoring education outcomes, how might this impact funding?

New discussion topics will be posted regularly. We welcome your thoughts and opinions, and look forward to engaging with you in this important dialogue.

Background

With limited funding available in education in emergencies (EiE), it is imperative that we maximize our impact. This requires that we strive to better understand what works in EiE – that we strengthen the evidence base, while never letting up the call for increased and responsive financing.

The discussion series is organized by:

  • Sonja Anderson (INEE)
  • Patrick Montjourides (Norrag)
