framework for commitments

In line with the intention to strengthen the international response to the global refugee crisis and grow support to meet the needs of refugee and host communities, a key element of the High-Level Meeting on Action for Refugee Education is the opportunity for partners to make and share commitments to take action in support of education for refugee and host communities around the world.

We would like to thank all partners who have submitted commitments for their dedication and work for the advancement of refugee education.

Our shared aim is to crowd source tangible, far-reaching but achievable commitments, from a wide range of stakeholders, that increase access to quality learning outcomes for refugee children and youth.

Commitments that have been submitted address one or more of the three themes for the High-Level Meeting, namely inclusion, improvement and investment, but we also welcome commitments that address other issues regarding the advancement of refugee education.

We are still welcoming commitments from partners. If you wish to submit a commitment, you can find details guidance here. We invite you to use the Framework for Commitments form when submitting your commitments.
