Disaster Risk Reduction in Education in Emergencies: A Guidance Note

This Guidance Note recommends strategies and steps that can be taken. While the Guidance Note is consistent with the INEE Framework for Education in Emergencies, it has been set out in a simplified format for ease of reference. Cluster coordinators and technical staff are encouraged to use relevant ideas from here, based on the context and their priorities. The proactive approach of the Education Cluster and sector coordination groups in promoting DRR in education in emergencies is crucial. However, the ultimate responsibility and ownership of DRR undertakings lie with governments. While this document explicitly addresses reduction of disaster risks originating from natural hazards, many of the principles and approaches are applicable to other categories of risk as well.
