As a result of growing international momentum to tackle education in conflict and protracted crises, there is an increasing number of education programmes, yet a critical lack of rigorous evidence on ‘what works’. This programme aims to strengthen the international research agenda on education in conflict and protracted crises through evidence generation and more harmonised efforts among all stakeholders. At outcome level, an improved body of rigorous evidence on what works will improve knowledge among policy makers and practitioners. It will also strengthen the ability of DFID and partners to better design and implement programmes in these contexts, resulting in improved value for money and more effective programmes.The desired impact is 'more children getting better quality education in conflict and protracted crisis'.
The programme has three components: (i) the first component seeks to facilitate credible and inclusive elections, increase voter turnout, enhance women representation in politics and put concerns of ordinary Zambians at the heart of the political debate; (ii) the second component seeks to help ordinary Zambians articulate their concerns and expectations about the education received by their children, and engage bureaucrats and politicians to improve it; (iii) the third component support think tanks in producing and publishing influential high quality research to make a case for economic reforms that will benefit all Zambians, and helps them engage effectively with politicians, bureaucrats and the media on the findings.
