The EiE Hub’s Flagship Report for 2023, on Education in Emergencies and Climate Change, will be launched at the Palais des Nations in Geneva. The date will be confirmed shortly.
The report examines linkages between climate change, environmental degradation and EiE, building on existing reports which show how the climate crisis intersects with, compounds and multiplies disaster risk, biodiversity loss and pollution and waste, risk arising from conflict and security and risk associated with displacement, thus creating a multi-crisis syndrome. It also identifies and examines key roles that EiE is already assuming and key initiatives EiE could and should embrace – singly and in collaboration with other sectors and across the nexus – to advance transformative climate action and to help build resilient education systems able to withstand evermore severe climate-induced crises.
This is vital information for policy makers, opinion formers and decision takers operating across the nexus existing between human (and child) rights, development, peace, climate and environment, and humanitarian sectors, as well as for climate and global education funders and donors.
More information will follow closer to the date, watch this space for news.
