Thanks for adding this useful document on minimum standards! I hope that others follow your example and add resources for DRR in their own countries too!
I am a member of INEE MS Working Group as representative of Mavi Kalem Social Assistance and Charity Association (Mavi Kalem SACA).

INEE MS 2004 was translated to Turkish.

Moreover, INEE MS 2010 is being translated to Turkish as well.

Mavi Kalem SACA actively involved in the revision of INEE MS Handbook. In terms of this, three consultative workshops were conducted. Fore more information:

The INEE Minimum Standards for Education: Preparedness, Response, Recovery is the only global tool that articulates the minimum level of educational quality and access in emergencies through to recovery.  It was written in a highly collaborative process by over 2,500 people around the world and recently updated to reflect recent developments in the field and to incorporate the experience and good practice of users of the Handbook.  The aim of the Handbook is 1) to enhance the quality of educational preparedness, response and recovery; 2) to increase access to safe and relevant learning opportunities for all learners, regardless of their age, gender or abilities; and 3) to ensure accountability and strong coordination in the provision of education in emergencies through to recovery.  To access translations of the Minimum Standards Handbook in one of ten languages, click here.


The INEE Toolkit contains a wide variety of practical, field-friendly tools and resources to guide educationalists, humanitarian workers and government officials working in the field of education in emergencies through to recovery. The Toolkit includes INEE's primary publications in multiple languages and numerous implementation tools to support their use.

The sections on the INEE Minimum Standards and the INEE Guidance Notes on Teaching and Learning also contain accompanying vetted resources on the following thematic issues: Conflict Mitigation, Disaster Risk Reduction, Early Childhood Development, Gender, HIV and AIDS, Human Rights, Inclusive Education, Inter-Sectoral Linkages, Protection, Psychosocial Support, and Youth. 


If you are new to the field of Education in Emergencies and/or unfamiliar with the INEE Minimum Standards, you may want to participate in our new e-learning module, Learning is Their Future: Darfuri Refugees in Chad.  This module provides participants with an interactive way to learn about education in emergencies as well as the INEE Minimum Standards for Education.  Through a range of media including video, photographs, articles and reports, participants learn about the case of Darfuri Refugees in Eastern Chad and have the opportunity to apply the Minimum Standards to the situation. 


The e-learning module is in a six-month pilot phase in which we are hoping to collect feedback to help us improve it.  We invite you to share your thoughts with us!  The module can be accessed online and should take about 3 hours.  Additionally, we can also send a CD of the same module for any field-based partners who may be interested in this but have low internet connection.
