The distribution of international aid would be different if donors could focus on children rather than countries. Speakers will discuss how education Official Development Assistance is not distributed according to children's needs and how it could be. An original methodology from nine countries will be presented and its extension to 67 countries in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and Latin America. Speakers will engage with donors about how they can do development differently and have a greater impact on equity and equality in the education sector. They will discuss the humanitarian and emergency data available from the Humanitarian Data Exchange platform and highlight the power of predictive analytics to anticipate future inequalities and prepare better educational interventions.
