The Heat is On! Towards Climate Resilient Education Systems in South Asia

This regional report, commissioned by UNICEF South Asia, represents a shift in how the education sector has been analyzed with regards to climate change risks, moving away from a narrow focus on climate impacts on education infrastructure and on student’s attendance, towards a systemic approach on the fundamental role that education systems can – and must – play in the climate change agenda.

The regional report analyses education sector responses to climate change exploring seven key education systems components: Policies, plans and strategies
Finance; Curriculum, teaching and learning; Teacher capacity development; Communication, coordination and partnership; School and community student participation platforms; Monitoring, evaluation and accountability

The report offers key recommendations and a self-assessment tool to make the education systems in South Asia, and globally, more resilient in the face of increasing climate change risks.
