With over one third of all children who are out of school living in countries affected by conflict or emergency, and an estimated 125 million children likely to be affected by climate change over the next decade, there is an urgent need for educational planners to integrate conflict prevention and disaster preparedness measures into sector planning processes.
INEE has highlighted the following event which encourages a wider discussion on the longer term planning for expected emergencies.
