Uganda: Strengthening education sector planning capacities for conflict and disaster risk management

Having suffered a succession of both conflicts and disasters, in 2014, Uganda embarked on a process to develop education sector capacities for preventing and mitigating conflict and disaster risk in and through education, by strengthening the capacities of education policy-makers and planners at central and district levels, as well as of teachers and learners. This publication presents lessons learned from IIEP’s support to this process between 2014 and 2016, when it worked closely with the Ministry of Education, Science, Technology and Sports (MoESTS) and UNICEF Uganda. The project was supported by UNICEF ESARO and PEIC.
