A Fund for Education in Emergencies: Business Weighs In

GBC-Education partnered with the Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) Secretariat’s global consultation to poll the business community on a draft discussion paper on financing education in emergencies. The results revealed that the business community supports the creation of a fund or financing mechanism to mobilize increased resources to address the crisis of education in emergencies. This discussion draft summarizes both the rationale for this view as well as the recommendations drawn out by the consultation from companies representing a range of industries, sizes and regions of operation as well as business coalitions.
