  1. inspire political commitment
  2. expand and coordinate planning and response
  3. generate and disburse new funding
  4. build national and global capacity
  5. strengthen accountability and evidence

The Education Crisis Platform could deliver a catalytic shift in in global approach and ambition in the area of education in emergencies and protracted crises, securing the right of millions of children caught up in crisis to go to school.

In The Fierce Urgency of Now the Global Campaign for Education UK sets out what the UK government should do next to ensure that this transformation takes place – through political and financial leadership at the World Humanitarian Summit and beyond.
