In this webinar, the Donor Tracker's Sheba George and Cora Lüdemann were joined by Margarita Focas-Licht (Chief, Effective Partnership, Global Partnership for Education; GPE) and Benoit d'Ansembourg (Senior Education Officer, UNHCR) to discuss the urgent need for financing for education in emergencies.

The growth of protracted conflicts and the increasing prevalence of emergencies globally have impacted the educational opportunities of millions of children. This year, precarious humanitarian situations around the world are being further exacerbated by the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. With just ten years left to achieve the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), amid a global pandemic, prioritizing the educational needs of the world’s most vulnerable children is more important than ever.

Watch this webinar recording for an analysis of current funding and policy trends in the sector and a discussion of the role of multilaterals, including GPE and UNHCR, in providing education in emergency settings, especially in the context of COVID-19.
