Overview: This simulation is based on the context of the current crisis in northern Nigeria, challenged by IDP children and youth seeking education opportunity. Participants will assume organizational roles and experience the use of feedback loops, informed by data and information, to accomplish the following:
- Focus on program objectives for Education Conflict Response: to provide opportunities for relevant, safe, and effective education for girls, boys and youth who are affected by conflict, in particular those children and youth who have been displaced by the insurgency.
- Analyze the evidence on trends in access, safety, and learning: What are key factors both supporting and blocking progress—including drivers of conflict?
- Explore innovative and practical opportunities and solutions based on shared information.
- Apply good practices and guidelines for effective use of feedback loops for collaborative problem solving. (p. 1)
