Consultations: Education in Emergencies and Protracted Crisis, Phase II
USAID ECCN is working with INEE to host 2 consultations related to the Education in Emergencies and Protracted Crisis Global Consultation (EiEPC), Phase II. The first USAID ECCN consultation will be for all USAID ECCN CoP members, and the second consultation will be exclusively for USAID staff.
These consultations are follow-ups to ones held in June 2015 in preparation for the July 2015 Oslo Summit and will focus on gathering reactions to specific next step recommendations from global leaders related to a proposed "common platform" to generate political commitment and financial resources for meeting the educational needs of millions of children and young people affected by crisis.
The consultation period is planned for January 19 - February 5, 2016 and USAID ECCN members can participate in several ways:
- Read and comment on the options paper between January 21 - February 2, 2016. We will be using an online platform called 'NowComment' for commenting on the options paper. All USAID ECCN members will receive an email later today from NowComment Notifications titled "[NowComment] USAID ECCN would like your thoughts on a document" with a link to access the options paper. If you have trouble accessing the document, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Live, virtual commentary:
- All USAID ECCN members who are not USAID staff are invited to participate in a 1 hour online consultation on February 1 from 9:30-10:30 am EDT. Please RSVP here.
- All USAID staff are invited to participate in a 1 hour online consultation on February 2 from 9-10 am EDT. USAID staff will receive a separate invitation letter for this consultation.
