Additionally, conflict and crises inflict further risks and challenges to learners who are unable to access education. 

Our gathering will be an opportunity to build and strengthen relationships, and foster networks to share collective knowledge, experience, and evidence. Together, we can achieve the commitments to goals aimed at increasing learning outcomes for all learners through resilient, accessible, and inclusive education. We look forward to welcoming you.”
