Using the RERA in Liberia
and South Sudan

Two new blog posts describe how implementing partners have successfully applied a Rapid Education and Risk Analysis (RERA) in Liberia and South Sudan.
In “How One NGO Is Adapting the RERA as a Rolling Exercise,” Sarah Neville (EDC) describes EDC's implementation of a RERA in Liberia. Neville notes that the team in Liberia is preparing to use rolling assessments—“light” RERAs—which will follow up on their initial RERA findings and see if things are changing over time. This keeps their management processes informed by the changing risk environment, nimble, and able to quickly adapt to changes.
In “Adapting to Safety and Security Challenges: Lessons Learned During a RERA in South Sudan,” Wendy Wheaton (USAID) and Nitika Tolani (MSI) discuss how a RERA in South Sudan helped gain a deeper understanding of the relationship between the conflict and the educational system. Conducting the RERA in such a high threat situation called for ongoing adaptation and collaboartation. Shortly after data collection began, a local community organization threatened any citizens who cooperated with the effort. In the end, after negotiations, the project was able to continue without further threat.
