Save the Children International Asia Regional Office is inviting submissions for proposals for conducting the research “The Economic Consequences of Hazard Impacts on Education: Analytical Framework and Case Studies”.

The purpose of this research is to appraise the short- and long-term, tangible and intangible, direct and indirect economic consequences of intensive and extensive hazards impacts on the education sector, including and especially with reference to reducing educational inequities and disparities.

The project has two elements:

The framework should include the impact of hazards and associated policy responses on both

  • education sector infrastructure (facilities, teaching and learning materials, etc.) as well as
  • educational outcomes for students (achievement and attainment).
  • The framework should be constructed so that it can be used for cost-effectiveness, cost benefit, and social return on investment analyses in the future.
