The Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) is an open global network of over 6,500 member representatives from NGOs, UN agencies, donor agencies, governments, academic institutions, schools and affected populations working together to ensure all persons the right to quality and safe education in emergencies and post-crisis recovery.

The INEE Minimum Standards for Education: Preparedness, Response, Recovery are both a handbook and an expression of commitment that children, youth, and adults have a right to education during emergencies and fragile contexts, such as natural disasters and armed conflicts. The standards are founded on the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Dakar 2000 Education for All goals and the Sphere Project’s Humanitarian Charter, and developed by over 2,250 individuals from more than 50 countries.
