Armed conflict and natural disasters have a devastating impact on children and their education. But international awareness of the potential value of education as a source of protection in emergencies and a key to development is growing. Early investment in education can protect children from the most damaging aspects of disaster, as well as play a significant role in building peace, restoring countries to a positive development path, and reversing the damage wrought by the emergency. In this publication, Save the Children demonstrates how education can be provided in emergencies and urges governments to do their part to ensure that all children — even those in emergency and conflict situations — have access to quality education, recreation and related activities, taking advantage of education as both a conflict-protection and conflict-prevention tool as well as a critical ingredient to the reconstruction of post emergency societies.
