Education Rapid Needs Assessment
The development of the National Education Response Plan (NERP) has enabled the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan and development partners - i.e. members of the Development Coordination Council (DCC) education working group - to respond effectively to the impact of COVID-19 outbreak and side effects to education sector in Tajikistan.
The threat posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and economic decline is likely to have a long-lasting impact on education and psychological wellbeing of children in Tajikistan. Within this context, there is an urgent need for a Education Rapid Needs Assessment (ERNA) to provide a snapshot of education-related needs in relation to access to learning opportunities, nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), disability, as well as impact on education budget and possible disruption in the 2020-21 academic year. ERNA will generate much needed evidence base - through the survey and preliminary fiscal overview - for interventions to mitigate the impact of the pandemic on children in general secondary education.
