Building Back Equal Guide

Share:
Education

This week, Plan International, UNESCO, UNGEI, UNICEF and Malala Fund, launched Building Back Equal: Girls Back to School Guide.

The guide aims to help policymakers and practitioners in Ministries of Education and their partners address the gender dimensions of the COVID-related school closures.

It provides targeted recommendations to ensure continuity of learning while schools are closed, and to establish comprehensive, timely and evidence-based plans for reopening schools in a way that is safe, gender-responsive and child-friendly, and meets the needs of the most marginalised girls.

It emphasises an approach to ‘build back equal’ through gender-responsive measures that transform education systems, prioritise resilience, and address the key bottlenecks and barriers to girls’ education.

This guide was developed by partners in UNESCO’s COVID-19 Global Education Coalition’s Gender Flagship. The Gender Flagship provides a collaborative platform for stakeholders committed to gender equality, and girls’ and women’s empowerment in and through education.

Together, we are working to ensure that #LearningNeverStops.
