The focus of the INEE Minimum Standards Handbook is on ensuring quality, coordinated humanitarian response: meeting the educational rights and needs of people affected by disaster through processes that assert their dignity. It is also important to coordinate humanitarian and development aid in the education sector. Particularly in conflict-affected contexts, periods of stability can be interrupted by conflict, instability and humanitarian crises. In these situations, humanitarian and development organisations often act simultaneously in supporting education. Coordination and close collaboration between these stakeholders are critical to support education effectively, including during the transition from humanitarian aid to development assistance. The handbook provides guidance on how to prepare for and respond to acute emergencies in ways that reduce risk, improve future preparedness and lay a solid foundation for quality education. This contributes to building back stronger education systems in the recovery and development stages.
