INNOTECH TK-03-2014: Toolki for Building Disaster-Resilient Scool Communities in Southeast Asia

This toolkit is designed for high-risk school communities in Southeast Asia within the context of education for sustainable development (ESD). It presents important key concepts and examples on disaster risk reduction and the strategic action taken by SEAMEO Member Countries in integrating these in education and local governance. It is intended for school heads and teachers to help them coordinate, setup, maintain and sustain effective DRRM programs in their respective school communities. It captures the life-giving stories and innovations on school-based DRRM in Southeast Asia into one learning resource package, the end goal of which is to develop disaster-resilient schools communities. The toolkit is broadly anchored on the Minimum Standards for Education in Emergencies set forth by the Inter-agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE). These standards are intended to ‘enhance the quality of educational preparedness, response and recovery, increase the access to safe and relevant learning opportunities and ensure accountability in providing these services’ (INEE 2010). The standards set the yardstick for the education sector in ensuring that the fundamental right to education is enjoyed by all people, especially by children and youth who are affected by disasters and conflict.
