Professor Frank Hardman from the IEE and Professor Sultan Barakat from the Post-War and Reconstruction and Development Unit (PRDU) have published the final report of an evaluation of UNICEF's Eastern and Southern African programme designed to develop institutional capacity in responding to emergencies in education caused by natural disaster and conflict.
The evaluation, which is part of a collaborative research programme – Education in Conflict and Emergencies – between the IEE and the PRDU, draws on evidence from five country case studies (Burundi, Comoros, Madagascar, Malawi, and Rwanda) and a survey of 18 out of 21 countries in the region. It identifies the achievements and lessons learned during the implementation of UNICEF’s capacity building training programmes and evaluates how policy and practice has been affected at the national, district, school, and community level. The release of the report will be followed by wider dissemination throughout the region of the lessons learned for responding to emergencies.
