All individuals have a right to education. Education in emergencies and during chronic crisis and early reconstruction efforts can be both life saving and life sustaining. In recent years there has been a rise in awareness of the need for non-formal and formal education programmes in emergencies situations. Millions of children, youth and adults have benefited from the efforts of education authorities and local and international humanitarian agencies. In response, in 2003 a working group was instituted to facilitate the development of global minimum standards for Education in Emergencies. The initiative was hosted within the Inter-Agency Network on Education in Emergencies (INEE), an open network of UN agencies, NGOs, donors, practitioners, researchers and individual from affected population working together to ensure the right to education in emergencies and post-crisis reconstruction
The Minimum Standards for Education in Emergencies (MSEE) training are designed for use in emergency response and may also be useful in emergency preparedness and in humanitarian advocacy.
