Education in emergencies - The Gender implication advocacy brief

Education in emergencies is a critical intervention in the promotion of gender equality. It can create opportunities for girls and women for cognitive development and individual empowerment that may not have existed before. Education opportunities can help to improve the status of women and girls in society. Women’s and girls’ participation is critical in post-emergency recovery, reconstruction and peace-building efforts and genderresponsive education programmes that give girls opportunities to learn new skills and develop their confidence help to pave the way in this process.
