Evidence Review: Mitigating threats to girls' education in conflict affected contexts - current practice

Recognising the particular vulnerabilities affecting girls in conflict-affected contexts, this review focuses on girls’ education. The cost of not investing in education for girls far exceeds the cost of investing. Girls’ education increases economic growth, increases women’s wages, improves women’s health, reduces child marriage, and increases individual and community empowerment. Furthermore, actions that enable girls’ education in conflict-affected contexts can create ‘windows of opportunity’ for transformative change that may not have existed prior to the conflict.
