20 Years of INEE
Achievements and Challenges in Education in Emergencies
This report highlights the continued relevance of the Inter-agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) 20 years on. It presents new data that shows 127 million primary and secondary school-age children and young people living in crisis-affected countries were out of school in 2019. This is equivalent to almost half of the global out-of-school population, even though only around 29% of children and young people in this age group globally live in crisis-affected countries. These figures are based on new data provided by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS). The report also demonstrates the still urgent need to prioritize education and financing of education in emergencies, particularly in ‘forgotten’ crises.
