Selecting, Scaling Up, Sustaining & Coordinating Intersectoral Policy/Program Coordination Frameworks (IPPCFs)

Bluntly stated, transforming school systems to better promote inclusion and equity is simply not be possible without significant commitments of funds and staff from other public sectors to work with or within school systems. All countries and UN agencies recognize this and have developed multi-component approaches (MCAs) to coordinate policies and programs across sectors. In most cases, these mechanisms have evolved into evidence-based and experiencetested Intersectoral Policy-Program Coordination Frameworks (IPPCFs) such as Child Friendly Schools, Education in Emergencies Standards, Health Promoting Schools, Safe Schools, and many others. Similarly, multi-intervention programs are also widely used to address more specific issues such as bullying, child abuse, HIV/AIDS, extreme violence and many others.
