In May 2017, USAID awarded SI the Haiti Evaluation Survey Services (ESS) contract to conduct baseline, mid-term, and final Evaluations for a wide range of projects currently being implemented throughout the country, with more emphasis around USAID’s development corridors of Port-au-Prince, Saint Marc, and Cap-Haitian. The contract also includes sector assessments to inform the Mission in designing its new Strategic Framework (2018-2020).
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID)/Haiti requested that Social Impact, Inc.’s (SI) Evaluation and Survey Services (ESS) project design and implement an independent Haiti Rapid Education and Risk Analysis (RERA). USAID/Haiti is currently developing a strategic framework focused on building resilience, prosperity and democracy. The purpose of this mid-term performance RERA is to inform the strategic framework.
In line with the strategic framework and building upon the successes and learnings of USAID’s previous work in early grade reading in Haiti, this analysis will focus on the unique barriers to learning and assets and capacities of each school community. This analysis will better illuminate the effects of the recent school closures on disparate populations, i.e who is impacted and how as well as uncover coping strategies that can be strengthened. This activity will also provide a snapshot of the education system and identify key actors and entry points to support the Mission’s goal of a flexible, resilient system.
Rapid Education and Risk Analysis
USAID/Haiti is seeking to conduct a Rapid Education and Risk Analysis (RERA). A RERA is a “good enough” situation analysis of educational institutions, 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, to illuminate opportunities to support school community resilience. Importantly, a RERA investigates how risks impact the school community, how education influences risks, and how contextual risks influence each other.
