Guidance Notes on Safer School Construction

The Guidance Notes on Safer School Construction present a framework of guiding principles and general steps to develop a context-specific plan to address this critical gap to reaching Education for All (EFA) and Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) through the disaster resilient construction and retrofitting of school buildings.

The Guidance Notes on Safer School Construction should be used by policymakers and planners of local, regional and national government bodies and all other organizations interested or engaged in enhancing the safety of school populations through improved hazard resistant construction and retrofitting of schools buildings. They can be used to guide discussion, planning and design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of school construction and should be utilized to strengthen Education Sector Plans and to develop National Action Plan for Safe Schools.

Also available in Chinese and Hindi.
