About the publication

This policy brief draws on country consultations, focus group discussions with education stakeholders, and key documents integrated into the GEC’s RRM toolkit, including the University of Sussex Synthesis Report ‘Strengthening Rapid Education Responses in Acute Emergencies’, to provide a set of practical recommendations to enhance education authorities’ engagement and leadership in RRM and rapid EiE response at national, subnational, and local levels. More specifically, the recommendations outline how to i) enhance joint coordinated preparedness efforts between the MoE and humanitarian partners as a precondition for effective rapid EiE responses; ii) strengthen the role of MoEs during EiE responses; and iii) foster an enabling environment for effective MoE engagement and leadership in preventing or mitigating, preparing for, and responding to sudden-onset emergencies.
