We are pleased to share today's announcement from Dubai Cares on the Evidence for Education in Emergencies (E-Cubed) second round of research investments. The call for proposals, launched in May 2018, prompted 69 proposals ranging in context, methodology and thematic focus. 33% of these proposals were put forward by applicants local to under-represented contexts. This round of proposals saw an increased focus on Inclusive Education and Disabilities, and Disaster Risk Reduction, while the top two thematic areas proposed were Adolescents and Youth, and Psychosocial Support and Social and Emotional Learning.
After a careful selection process, Dubai Cares has selected the following four research projects for funding:

Note from the donor:
Dear INEE community,
Since its launch, E-Cubed has set out to support the creation of global public goods by and for the EiE sector. We are delighted that E-Cubed’s second call for proposals produced 69 proposals and continued to generate important insights about what gaps there are in the EiE evidence base.
After careful consideration and review of the proposals shortlisted by the E-Cubed advisory panel, Dubai Cares has chosen 4 proposals for funding. These proposals cover a diverse range of research locations, methodologies, and inquiries. All 4 proposals, however, share a common aim of generating globally relevant and culturally grounded evidence in under-researched areas, with a focus on addressing the needs, questions, and voices of local actors.
We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to INEE, whose dedication, leadership, and expertise have been core to the efforts of funding evidence for EiE, and to the E-Cubed advisory panel, whose in-depth analysis and ranking of the proposals guarantees the required rigor and quality to ensure E-Cubed contributes relevant global public goods to those who work to deliver education to children and youth caught in emergencies.
Thank you to all those who submitted proposals for the 2018 round of E-Cubed. We encourage those who we were not able to fund at this time to keep an eye out for the 2019 E-Cubed call in April.
