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:

  • To Construct a framework to analyse the economic consequences of hazards on the education sector
  • To apply that framework to three case studies

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.

Objectives

  • To understand the differential and longitudinal economic consequences of hazards impacts on children’s education outcomes (including larger intensive disaster impacts and extensive and recurrent impacts of hazards);
