Highlights

In June 2023, the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MEHE), with funds from the European Union and in collaboration with the Centre for Educational Research and Development (CERD), launched in partnership with UNICEF, the National Policy on Inclusive Education for Children with Special Needs in Lebanon. The Policy, financed by the European Union and Education Cannot Wait Fund, aims to provide a national framework for an inclusive education implementation in Lebanon, based on the lessons learned from the Inclusive Education Programme funded by the EU and supported by UNICEF, and international best practices. In addition, a roadmap has been developed as an action plan for implementing the Policy, which will be finalized by MEHE DOPS this year.
