Building a Culture of Resilience

Building a Culture of Resilience

(Post-war Reconstruction and Development Uni and University of York)

As part of continuing efforts to ensure that education services are sustained in the wake of natural and man-made disasters, UNICEF and its partner organisation, Save the Children (SC), undertook a capacity building training and institutionalisation programme, a component of the global Education in Emergencies and Post-crisis Transition Programme (EEPCT).  This initiative, implemented with the support of the IASC Education Cluster, aimed to “…build and strengthen sustainable national emergency preparedness and response (EPR) capacity in the education sector in the Eastern and Southern Africa Region (ESAR) holistically and strategically.” Since its inception in May 2009, the training program has managed to reach more than 2,800 frontline responders from national governments, local and international NGOs, civil society organisations, and UN agencies throughout ESAR, despite many challenges.
