INEE Minimum Standards
The Handbook is designed to give governments and humanitarian workers the tools that they need to address both local and global goals. It is the first step toward ensuring that education initiatives in emergency situations provide a solid and sound basis for post-conflict and disaster reconstruction. The INEE Minimum Standards express a commitment that all individuals – children, youth, and adults – have a right to education during emergencies and fragile contexts. They echo the core beliefs of the Sphere Project: that all possible steps should be taken to alleviate human suffering arising out of calamity and conflict, and that people affected by disaster have a right to life with dignity.
