This study aimed to complement other recent studies on the barriers to achieving children’s right to a free basic quality education, and to identify significant sources of inequities in educational participation, particularly as the result of hazards, disasters, and climate-change impacts.
The study sought to generate evidence-based documentation which can be used to support the Ministry of Education in its efforts to address educational inequities with thoughtful, evidence-based planning and decision-making, and to guide education sector partners, development partners, donors, and other stakeholders in reducing hazard and disaster impacts on the education sector. The purpose of this research was to analyse the specific effect and comparative impacts of daily and recurrent hazards, on girls and boys in rural and remote districts in Laos in accessing a quality education (formal and informal).
