Welcome to INEE Minimum Standards

This module is an introduction to the Standards and how they form the foundation of the education in emergencies sector. The module takes the learner through INEE Minimum Standards and then through INEE’s website and a number of the tools and resources that have been developed using the Standards as the foundation.
The Standards and related tools aim to enhance the quality of educational preparedness, response and recovery, increase access to safe and relevant learning opportunities and ensure accountability in providing these services.
