More and Better for Education in Emergencies

June 11, 2015

Children living in conflict or emergency-affected areas make up a quarter of the world’s primary school-aged population, yet they represent half of the 58 million children out of school globally. One of the persistent challenges in providing education to children caught up in emergencies is a lack of funding.

Earlier this year the UN Special Envoy for Education and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown, called for the establishment of a new fund for education in emergencies. Save the Children published More and better: Global action to improve funding, support and collaboration for education in emergencies, which sets out three principles that they want to see delivered by any global action in support of education in emergencies, including a new funding mechanism.
