RERA Pilot in El Salvador

A USAID ECCN team conducted a Rapid Education Risk Analysis this month 

USAID/El Salvador invited USAID ECCN to pilot the Rapid Education Risk Analysis (RERA) tool in El Salvador, March 9-18. The rapid study highlighted the interaction of violence, disaster risk and education, and focused on a subset of San Salvador's most vulnerable municipalities. The research team (Jim Rogan, 3 researchers and 2 USAID Education staff) shared preliminary findings and recommendations with the USAID El Salvador and Honduras Missions. The pilot report will be available in May with collaborative lessons learned sessions to follow.
