International Recovery Platform


This chapter provides guidance on the process and components of a PDNA for the Education Sector. An Education Sector Assessment should utilise participatory, people-centered approaches in creating a clear framework for recovery and reconstruction, and its links to long-term development. It should be conducted through a risk reduction and gender-sensitive lens, and will often inform the revision of flash appeals and donors´ conferences. The PDNA process will be led by national governments and thus the Ministry of Education (MoE) will most often serve as the sectoral lead. It is the responsibility of the sectoral lead to determine, in consultation with relevant partners, the methodology for data collection and approaches to data analysis. Thus, these guidelines are meant to guide the Education Sector of the PDNA team in the preparation of a comprehensive assessment of the event and develop a full recovery strategy. This preparation follows the internationally accepted standards for assessments.
