    Abstract South Asia is particularly vulnerable to natural disasters, with millions of displacements recorded every year. Yet issues of climate-induced displacement and migration remain underrepresented in policy discourse, advocacy, and research. As a result, students in disaster-prone areas are often kept out of school during and after disasters. This policy brief highlights the common governance gaps in protecting the right to education for displaced persons in South and Southeast Asia, and provides policy recommendations for addressing them. Recommendations: • Protect the rights of climate displaced persons through an intersectoral and integrated approach to education, disaster management, and climate change adaptation policies. • Support research and policy development, including by scaling up existing safe-school initiatives to enhance local adaptive capacity. • Prioritise marginalised learners and educational support that meets the physical and psychological needs of climate displaced persons, such as basic study materials, counseling support, and multilingual learning toolkits.
