Strengthening education management information systems for increased resilience to crises: a synthesis of case studies
UNESCO commits to support Education Systems towards being more resilient and responsive in the face of conflict, social unrest and natural hazards – and to ensure that education is maintained during emergency, conflict and post-conflict situations. One of the key challenges facing education is the lack of accurate, reliable and timely data to drive effective emergency preparedness, response and recovery processes.
This publication is a technical analysis and synthesis of the key findings and recommendations brought forward by the six studies to inform the way forward of the initiative and contribute to building resilient education systems. In 2019, UNESCO and its partners conducted six country cases studies in Chad, Ethiopia, Palestine, South Sudan; the Syrian Arab Republic and Uganda to examine existing EMIS and recurring challenges related to informing Education in Emergencies (EiE) strategies and crisis-sensitive education plans to mitigate the disruption of education and ensure access to quality and safe education to all children and youth.
While the case studies discuss the above countries and key findings outline the relevant elements in data quality and availability, the chapter on the way forward provides recommendations which are also relevant to keep in mind in EMIS of Asia-Pacific countries.
