Executive Summary

This report summarizes progress, gaps, challenges and opportunities in improving education and training for girls and women affected by conflict and crisis. The report aims to support the Charlevoix Declaration on Quality Education’s commitment to enhance the evidence base and monitor progress toward gender-equitable education in crises. The report draws from data on 44 crisis-affected countries, from recent research, and from a set of case studies of interventions in a range of crisis-affected contexts.

For a summary of key findings and recommended actions for implementers, policymakers, and donors, please refer to the accompanying policy paper: Closing the Gap: Advancing Girls’ Education in Contexts of Crisis and Conflict.
