Regional Consultation Meeting on Education and Resilience in East Asia and the Pacific: Developing Guidance for Programmes and Policies that Promote Social Cohesion and Comprehensive School Safety

4 – 7 November 2014
SEAMEO INNOTECH, Quezon City, Philippines

 

Many countries of East Asia and the Pacific (EAP) are facing significant challenges of reducing conflict and building peace, while at the same time addressing natural hazards and the effects of climate change. Ministries of education and other education agencies and stakeholders have a central role to play in helping prevent and reduce the impact of these challenges. This regional consultation meeting addresses how education policy, planning, and programs can strengthen the resilience of children, schools, communities, and education systems through comprehensive school safety and social cohesion approaches. Participants made recommendations for regional guidelines and how existing and new networks, platforms, and tools can advance the role of education in strengthening resilience.
