Two new GEM Report papers:

Decreasing aid to education and the chronic need to educate forcibly displaced populations

A new policy paper released at the end of April in time for Global Action Week run by the Global Campaign for Education shows that aid to education needs to rise considerably if the world is to reach the new education goal in the Sustainable Development Agenda. 

Donor countries have the means to bridge the gap. But the latest data, from 2014, show that for several years aid to education has been stuck at a level far below what is needed.

Humanitarian aid for education is also still at low levels. In 2015, out of a total amount of US$10.6 billion of humanitarian aid, the education sector received $198 million. This is less than 1.9% of total funding.

A new policy paper, No more excuses: Provide education to all forcibly displaced people, jointly produced by the GEM Report and UNHCR shows the scale of the education needs for refugees and internally displaced children and youth. 

The paper calls for countries and their humanitarian and development partners to urgently ensure that those forcibly displaced are included in national education plans and to collect better data to monitor their education status and progress. It reveals new data showing that only 50% of refugee children are in primary school and 25% of refugee adolescents are in secondary school.
