Constructing learning spaces – a new report

From INEE newsletter

Transitional Learning Spaces – New Compendium
UNICEF

Natural disasters and conflict are known obstacles to education. In areas recovering from disaster, education interventions are considered key to “building back better.”

To that goal, UNICEF just launched a new compendium – Transitional learning spaces (TLS): Resilient design and construction in emergencies 2013 – geared towards practitioners in the field rebuilding learning environments especially after emergencies.

Building on the 2011 compendium, which focuses on general design principles, construction materials and modalities, the 2013 edition provides new case studies and lessons learned to build safer and more resilient child-friendly learning environments.
