Risk-Informed Programming

This list of resources on Risk-Informed Programming are part of the larger Learning for Peace project which produced dozens of briefs, reports, case studies, guides, and research products, and compiled many other relevant resources related to the link between education and peacebuilding.

This section introduces UNICEF’s framework for risk-informed programming that is used for the preparation of five-year country development plans. The framework assists country offices to prepare for, cope with, or overcome hazards, shocks and stresses resulting from natural disasters, climate change, conflict, bio-chemical hazards and economic shocks. The Guidance Note for Risk-Informed Programme [GRIP] provides an overview of UNICEF’s Theory of Change and tools for risk-informed programming, and offers chapters on child protection, education, nutrition, health as well as water, sanitation and hygiene services. There is also a stand-alone Guidance Note on Education Programming for Resilience, with case studies, tools and indicators.

Risk-informed Education Programming for Resilience

This Guidance Note aims to help UNICEF education staff at all levels, who are working in humanitarian, transition, and development contexts, analyze risk and adapt education policies and programs to take risk into account, so that education populations and systems are more resilient and all children and youth are in school and learning.
