UNGEI Forum: Education in Emergencies (2007)
Vol. 7 No. 1 April 2007
Author/Publisher: UNICEF Eastern and Southern Africa Region
Volume 7 Number 1 of UNGEI FORUM discusses the theme of Education in Emergencies.
This newsletter issue addresses the situations where children become invisible due to various emergencies, fragile states, conflicts, natural disasters, chronic crises or the long-term crisis of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. The emergency education brings these forgotten children back to the agenda and caters for the realization of their human rights. UNICEF as a member The Inter-Agency Network for Emergency Education (INEE) promotes emergency education with the UN, a wider international humanitarian community and with national governments and in fact, is now the leading agency in basic education in the emergency situations.
