Review of financing for education in emergencies, 2015-2018

The amount of humanitarian aid allocated to education doubled between 2015 and 2018 and Norway has reached the global goal of allocating 4% of their humanitarian aid to the sector.

​Save the Children Norway released this updated report on financing for education in emergencies between 2015 and 2018 . The Report was co-authored by Peace Research Institute (PRIO) researchers Kendra DupuyJulia Palik, and Gudrun Østby.

Among the key findings was that although there has been a general increase in humanitarian funding for education since 2014, education remains under-funded within humanitarian appeals.

Four countries received half of all humanitarian aid for education between 2015 and 2018: Syria, Yemen, South Sudan, and Iraq. These were also among the worst humanitarian disasters during this time period.
