The 4Ws of education and conflict data: Who has what data? Where can I find it? And why is this so complicated?

Sun, April 14, 10:00am to 1:00pm, Hyatt Regency, Floor: Pacific Concourse (Level -1), Pacific K

Group Submission Type: Pre-conference Workshop


The purpose of the workshop is to build the capacity of Education in Conflict and Crisis (EiCC) professionals and students to access, interpret, triangulate and use publicly available education data in crisis and conflict-affected contexts. Recent education data mapping activities by USAID’s Middle East Education Research, Training and Support (MEERS) activity and the Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) have revealed that humanitarian and development partners often collect and use education data in different ways, contributing to a lack of humanitarian-development coherence in the sector. These activities also demonstrate that a great deal of education data is publicly available from various partners, but many practitioners lack awareness and capacity for effective navigation. INEE has launched an initiative to host a web-based data library with navigation guidance, while MEERS is building a knowledge collective on the topic. Because data accessibility is a fundamental challenge in the EiCC sector, this workshop has the potential to contribute to improved education policy, program design and implementation, and evidence building across this field.

Learning Objectives:
The workshop has three learning objectives:
1. Contextualize the Discussion: Build understanding of recent discussions on the humanitarian-development nexus and how this affects the accessibility and reliability of EiCC data.
2. Review Data Sources and Indicators: Build understanding of how to access, interpret and triangulate a broad range of EiCC data, covering both acute and protracted crises, and refugee hosting contexts. Sources covered include:
a. Humanitarian Data
• Education Cluster/Working Group Humanitarian Dashboards
• UNOCHA Humanitarian Response Plans/Humanitarian Needs Overviews
b. Population Movement/Migration Data
• IOM Displacement Tracking Matrix
• IDMC Global Internal Displacement Database
• UNHCR Refugee Situations Portal
c. Conflict Incidence and Attacks on Education Data
• Armed Conflict Location & Event Data
• Uppsala Conflict Data Program
• Global Coalition to Protect Education from Attack
d. Development Data
• Education Policy and Data Center
• UNESCO Institute for Statistics
• Country-level Education Management Information System
3. Practice through a Hands-On Application: Practice finding and analyzing education data through a scenario-based task focusing on the use of data for designing and implementing an EiCC program.
