How Risk Analyses Informed Education Programming as War Continues into Its Fourth Year

Mon, March 26, 1:15 to 2:45pm, Hilton Reforma, Floor: 2nd Floor, Don Diego 4 Section A

Group Submission Type: Panel Session


This session is part of the Conflict Sensitive Education Series. USAID ECCN has released its new Rapid Education Risk Analysis (RERA) Toolkit, guiding a situation analysis of education systems, learners, and their communities as a dynamic system of relationships involving assets and multiple contextual risks. A RERA integrates key methodological elements of a rapid education needs assessment and contextual risk analyses, such as conflict analysis, disaster risk assessment and resilience analysis. It also serves to investigate how risks impact the school community, how education influences risks, and how contextual risks influence each other. The RERA guide supports USAID decision-making in three ways: 1. provides USAID Education Officers with a guide to conduct a rapid risk analysis in the education sector; 2. offers USAID Missions a managerial framework for understanding and managing risk in conflict and disaster-affected environments and 3. Identifies strategic opportunities for USAID Missions to leverage inter-agency partnerships, and influence macro-level, cross-sectoral analyses.

Panelists will provide an overview of the key elements of the new RERA with some references to field implementation and showcase the RERA in South Sudan as a key example of adapting the RERA to a high-risk, non-permissive environment. Each panelist will present for fifteen minutes each, and the remainder of the time will be dedicated to Q&A with audience members.
