Ensuring the Inclusion of the Right to Education in Emergencies in the Post-2015 Development Agenda
30 Sep 2015 -  High-level breakfast Meeting organized by the Permanent Missions of Benin, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Norway, Portugal, and Qatar to the UN.
Moderator: Mr. Nicholas Kristof, Columnist, The New York Times
Keynote Speakers: H.H. Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Chairperson and Founder of Education Above All; H.E. Mr. Gordon Brown, UN Special Advisor for Global Education; H.E. Mr. Jorge Sampaio, Former President of Portugal; Former High Representative, United Nations Alliance of Civilizations. The right to education in emergencies has also to be looked at from a development perspective, it should be planned from day one, as part of the development process and not solely as relief effort. Regrettably, the 17 Sustainable Development Targets (SDGs) with 169 associated targets do not cover the specific needs of education during emergencies. There is hope that the World Humanitarian Summit might provide a key opportunity to tackle this issue from a financial, policy and programmatic pespective.
