This project aims to improve the collection, monitoring, analysis, publication and reporting of sex-disaggregated data and evidence relating to improved access to girls’ and women’s education and skills training in fragile, crisis and conflict settings. The project supports the objectives of the Charlevoix Declaration on Quality Education for Girls, Adolescent Girls and Women in Developing Countries (Charlevoix Declaration on Quality Education). Project activities include: (1) convening a reference group that includes donors, civil society, academics, experts in gender and education in emergencies, and women from underrepresented contexts, to promote and drive progress on improving research, evidence, and sex-disaggregated data and accountability on girls’ and women’s education in fragile, crisis, and conflict settings; (2) developing and disseminating information on key issues related to women’s and girl’s education in fragile, crisis and conflict settings and the Charlevoix Declaration on Quality Education; (3) supporting the development of a platform on the Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) website to promote access to high quality, vetted, gender-responsive resources that highlight good practices; (4) updating INEE’s gender thematic web pages, including information on Charlevoix Declaration commitments, and helping to make INEE’s social media presence more gender-responsive; (5) providing support to INEE’s Journal on Education in Emergencies (JEiE) to develop a special edition on gender-responsive programming in emergencies, including reporting on the Charlevoix Declaration education commitments; and (6) translating these resources into INEE’s core languages (English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Arabic) where appropriate.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased equitable access to safe, secure, quality, inclusive education and learning by girls, adolescent girls and women, including those with disabilities, in fragile, crisis and conflict settings; and (2) improved equitable and coordinated provision of safe quality, gender-responsive and evidence-based formal and non-formal education, from early childhood to higher education, and technical and vocational education and training (TVET) for women and girls in fragile, crisis and conflict settings.
