Related posts

Course Background 

It seems that emergency circumstances have almost become a way of life in developing nations. Events such as the recent typhoons Haiyan and Phailin; the war in Afghanistan and Iraq; armed conflicts, droughts, and epidemics in Africa; earthquakes, tsunamis, and many other events to date, have affected billions of peoples around the world.

Victims of emergency situations need not only basic necessities such as food, shelter, and medical aid, but also educational facilitation and continuity. This is crucial since mitigation efforts often take years, which can have effects over generations. If mitigation strategies are not well planned and executed there is a great risk that the affected populace can get into an intergenerational poverty trap. This phenomenon can have harmful effects on the development of society at large.

The Education in Emergencies program will teach students and practitioners the essential skills and competencies needed to work in the education sector and in mitigating, responding to and rebuilding after complex emergencies.
