Education in Emergencies: A community’s need, a child’s right
Save the Children
About this resource
Based on focus group discussions with 173 children and 92 adults, as well as interviews
with local officials, staff of Save the Children and key humanitarian agencies, this paper argues that an effective humanitarian system must be made more accountable to the most vulnerable communities it works with, particularly children and youth who comprise such a large percentage.
This paper was used as a source for synthesised recommendations used in the Briefing Papers for the Global Forum on Improving Humanitarian Action, taking place in New York on 4/5 June 2015.
The Briefing Papers are intended to provide a general background to the key obstacles that inhibit good, effective humanitarian action, and the recommendations that have been put forward around the WHS process to address these obstacles.
