Needs Assessment

Analyzing needs is the essential starting point of coordinated humanitarian action. To understand a population’s education needs in an emergency or in a situation of chronic crisis, we must ask relevant questions in order to obtain high quality data. Robust and reliable education data can help affected communities and international actors begin to address some of the gaps in education services during emergencies. Better data can also provide insights into how education provision can be more resilient to situations of conflict or disaster sensitive. Carefully considering how we gather our information will also ensure that we hear the voices of all those involved in education.
