Resilience – some new resources

There is growing evidence of the need to strengthen the resilience of education systems. Including crisis prevention and peacebuilding measures in educational policy and planning is one mechanism for achieving this. If the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals are to be truly sustainable, conflict and disaster risk reduction must be embedded in sector policies, plans and budgets. 

New Website with  Resources on Education for Safety, Resilience and Social Cohesion

UNESCO/ PEIC

As part of a programme of collaboration to promote education for safety, resilience and social cohesion in education sector planning and curricula between the UNESCO International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP) and the Protect Education in Insecurity and Conflict programme (PEIC, Qatar), members of the PEIC – IIEP Advisory Group (including GPE, Kenya MoEST, NORAD, Uganda MoES, UNICEF HQ, UNICEF WCARO, UNICEF EAPRO, USAID) met at UNICEF Headquarters in New York City from 5 to 6 March 2015.

During the first phase of this programme, an online repository of documents and a website was produced. This website http://education4resilience.iiep.unesco.org/ exists in both English and French, and serves to consolidate and centralize documents related to educational planning for safety, resilience and social cohesion. It also includes resources on curriculum for learning to live together and disaster risk reduction. The website was developed with crisis contexts in mind, and uses relatively simple technology to ensure that individuals in even the most remote locations can access the site. It is important to note that the Resources page of the website is linked to an online database of approximately 400 documents which are searchable by theme (planning or curriculum), a series of keywords, country, resource type, organization and language.
