Comprehensive School Safety

The Comprehensive School Safety framework aims to reduce the risks of all hazards to the education sector. The update for 2017 brings into focus child-centered and evidence-based efforts to promote disaster risk reduction throughout the education sector and to assure universal access to quality education. This allows education sector partners to work more effectively and to link with similar efforts in other sectors.

Comprehensive School Safety rests on three pillars, including safe school facilities, school disaster management and risk reduction education. This document addresses these pillars by presenting key responsibilities and actions that can be taken through changes in education policy and practices aligned with disaster management at national, regional, district and local school site levels. The framework is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals 2015-2030 and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction priorities for action and indicators for the education sector.
