Elevating Education in Emergencies

8 November 2018 — By Global Education Cluster

The overall purpose of the Elevating Education in Emergencies series is to galvanise increased attention for and prioritisation of education in humanitarian responses. Following the first session which explored education’s critical role in bringing protection to children, youth and
communities affected by crisis, the second instalment takes stock of the work done within the education sector to implement cash transfer programming (CTP) and reflects upon the challenges, successes and opportunities for the future, with a focus on Iraq and Somalia. This event is part of the Global Education Cluster’s (GEC) initiative to scale up CTP for Education in Emergencies (EiE) outcomes.

While the body of knowledge on general CTP practices has grown, there is a significant knowledge gap for the use of CTP for EiE. Furthermore, CTP is typically led by cash experts within humanitarian organisations and social protection branches of governments, and education practitioners often have no or very little influence over its initiation, planning and design.

The GEC therefore, has embarked on a series of activities including events such as this, an ECHO funded study to document current practices in CTP for EiE outcomes, and collaboration with partners in this area to initiate a more systematic consideration of CTP use for EiE outcomes.
