[Webinar]: INEE impact of COVID-19 school closures in Lebanon, Colombia and DRC – 21 June 2022

Study: Impact of COVID-19 School Closures on Child Protection and Education Inequalities in Humanitarian Settings

Date: 21 June 2022

Time: 16.30 CEST

In 2020, schools around the world closed their doors to students in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. For children living in humanitarian contexts around the world, evidence suggests that the impact of prolonged closures and remote learning has been devastating.

Throughout 2021, child-centred, participatory research was conducted by national research teams in Colombia, Lebanon, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The goal of the study was to better understand the impact of school closures on children’s wellbeing, protection, and education inequalities.

During the panel, participants will explore how to best take these recommendations forward to ensure that children and their holistic well-being are at the centre of decision-making and planning processes in both the current and future infectious disease outbreaks.

Register for this online event with INEE to hear from the research team as they share key findings and recommendations from the study. 

*Please note that this event is part of the Alliance Annual Meeting for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action taking place from June 20 – 22.
