Checklist for Conflict Sensitivity in Education Programs

Under the USAID Education Strategy, programs should ensure equity of access to education by explicitly addressing inequalities. Inequalities in access to learning opportunities may be a consequence of any number of factors. For example, disparities in access to education can be localized or systemic, arising from consistent inequalities in policy frameworks or exclusionary practices. Inequalities can and often do lead to feelings of marginalization and grievances.

The Checklist for Conflict Sensitivity in Education Programs will assist USAID education programs in effectively and efficiently meeting Goal 3 of the USAID Education Strategy: Increase equitable access to education in conflict and crisis environments. Applying conflict sensitivity to program design, implementation, and monitoring will improve education programs by making them more equitable, effective, efficient, and sustainable.
