School Safety: a Sustainable Way to Increase the Resilience Dividend
- Global Alliance for Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience in Education Sector (GADRRRES), UNESCO
- Saskia Carusi; Mirna Abu Ata
Addressing disaster risk reduction in the education sector provides an opportunity to ensure education continuity and to protect learners and education workers from death, injury and harm in schools. It contributes overall to the development of a culture of safety and resilience.
One year before the deadline for achieving the Sendai Framework Target (e), GADRRRES will look at school safety as a sustainable way to increase the resilience dividend. This event will demonstrate how the creation, development and implementation of DRR strategies in the education sector can efficiently contribute to reduce the impacts of natural hazards, and will explore how the investments made in the education sector can pay dividends in multiple sectors at regional, national and local levels; notably on the social, economic, financial and environmental fronts.
This event will share case studies of countries/regions working on integrating school safety within their national, subnational, and/or local DRR strategies. Discussion will centre on demonstrating the challenges that countries can face in doing so while displaying the inter-sectoral benefits brought by investments made in school safety and updating the progress on advancing school safety.
