The HEA invests in research, learning and knowledge sharing to build the evidence base and improve understanding on what does and does not work in humanitarian education and how to bring what does work to scale. All of our Global Public Goods from HEA Phase 1 and 2 can be found below:
After seven years and three accelerator cohorts, the HEA has compiled all of the lesson learnt. Based off these lessons, this Learning Synthesis includes recommendations for innovators, donors, stakeholders, and future accelerators.
This learning paper unpacks the financing landscape within which humanitarian education innovations are scaling, providing recommendations on how we might collectively navigate and strengthen this area.
This policy brief brings together evidence from the Humanitarian Education Accelerator (HEA) and learnings from HEA grantees on government engagement for scaling humanitarian education innovations.
This policy brief brings together learnings from the Humanitarian Education Accelerator (HEA) External Evaluation Firm, American Institutes for Research (AIR), on the challenges and potential solutions for conducting rigorous research in humanitarian and crisis settings.
Tools & Case Studies
The HEA works together with its cohorts, experts and partners to identify and develop relevant tools and case studies that will inform and support the wider education sector.
A case study highlighting the scaling strategy, progress, impact and learning of HEA Phase II grantees, Cohere. Cohere’s innovation take a refugee-led approach to improving refugee Children With Disabilities (CWD) access to quality education in Uganda.
A case study highlighting the scaling strategy, progress, impact and learning of HEA Phase II grantees, Madrasati. Madrasati’s innovation – Masahati Student Clubs (MSC) – is an after-school programme providing a safe and dynamic social emotional learning space for refugee and host country learners in Jordan.
A case study highlighting the scaling strategy, progress, impact and learning of HEA Phase II grantees, iACT. iACT’s innovation – Little Ripples – is a refugee-led, trauma informed, early childhood education programme based in Chad.
The HEA commissioned external evaluations of the Phase 2 cohort’s innovation projects. Here we share the executive summaries of each of the evaluations.
Webinar on Scaling Humanitarian Education Innovations
On 27 April 2023, in collaboration with the Scaling Up Community of Practice, HEA ran a webinar on ‘Scaling education in emergencies and protracted crises (EiEPC) innovations – lessons from the UNHCR HEA.’ Co-presenters included HEA mentor NYU-TIES and Phase 2 innovation team Cohere.
