A Rapid Needs Assessment Guide: For Education in Countries Affected By Crisis & Conflict

Speeches Shim



USAID’s 2011 Education Strategy includes Goal 3: increased equitable access to education in crisis and conflict environments for 15 million learners by 2015. In these often unstable environments, a rapid needs assessment is critical to inform USAID staff decisions regarding design and delivery of programs aiming to provide equitable access to quality education for all learners in a way that does not contribute to conflict. 

This guide serves two purposes: 1) to provide USAID Washington and USAID Missions with a clear, common framework for undertaking education rapid needs assessments; and 2) to provide USAID Education Officers with necessary information to conduct a conflict-sensitive, high-quality, rapid needs assessment of the education situation in a conflict or crisis environment.
