This week, Chemonics presents at the 2019 Annual Conference of the Comparative & International Education Society (CIES) on sustainable education in conflict zones, early grade reading, book supply chain, and data- and technology-driven approaches to education.


From April 15 to April 18, Chemonics will present at the 2019 Annual Conference of the Comparative & International Education Society (CIES) in San Francisco, California. The conference convenes thousands of researchers, students, practitioners, and policymakers from around the globe to discuss high-priority education issues. In their presentations at CIES, Chemonics’ education specialists will tackle a range of topics, including sustainable education in conflict zones, early grade reading, book supply chain, and data- and technology-driven approaches to education.

This year’s conference theme is education for sustainability. The theme encourages the global education community to reconsider previous assumptions about education frameworks — particularly those that value “industrialization, modernity, and consumption.” What is the long-term price of such frameworks? And who pays the cost? The conference will challenge existing education paradigms, while advocating sustainable solutions for a sustainable planet.

“Chemonics is proud to present our work at CIES 2019, where our specialists will share lessons learned and best practices in the education sector,” said Senior Vice President Emet Mohr. “We are committed to sustainable, inclusive education programming, and CIES 2019 will be a space to further explore how the education community can best contribute to shared global goals.”

Chemonics’ education programming focuses on reaching the most marginalized populations — from people with disabilities to those in conflict environments. Visit our website to learn more about our work in education.
