Rapid Education and Risk Analysis Guide

The draft Rapid Education and Risk Analysis (RERA) guide, developed by ECCN in 2015, allows USAID and Implementing Partners to obtain a snapshot of how education systems, learners, families, and their communities interact with a dynamic, multiple-risk environment. The RERA integrates key elements of conflict analysis, disaster risk analysis, and resilience analysis and can be carried out over two to three weeks. The RERA supports all stages of the USAID program cycle and can be implemented within or outside of an existing USAID project activity.

A revised  RERA Guide and interactive toolkit has been released at the RERA Training on November 30 in Washington, D.C. For a glimpse into the much improved guidance, visit the RERA training page. The public release of the new RERA materials will happen in January – stay tuned.

Rapid Education and Risk Analysis: Gao, Mali


In late 2015, a Rapid Education and Risk Analysis (RERA) was conducted in Gao, Mali, by the USAID-funded Education Recovery Support Act project. The purpose of this RERA was to analyze the effects of the crisis on the lives of the population, the school system, and the security situation in order to define the project’s implementation strategies for the region. Below you will find links to the RERA final report in English and French as well as a presentation given by the project to stakeholders.

Rapid Education and Risk Analysis: Gao, Tombouctou, Kidal, Ségou and Mopti

In 2016 USAID/Mali commissioned a Rapid Education and Risk Analysis (RERA) for the regions of Gao, Tombouctou, Kidal, Ségou and Mopti as part of the Education Recovery Support Activity (ERSA), led by CAMRIS International. The RERA aimed to collect community perceptions and the impact of the conflict on the education of children; determine the impact of crises on Malian children, their schools, communities and the education system; and identify and explore the multiple barriers to access to education for children affected by the conflict. The Center for Studies and Research on Population and Health Information (CERIPS) conducted the RERA from August to September 2016.
