Education Sector Snapshot for Comprehensive School Safety (CSS) and Education in Emergencies (EiE)

The Education Sector Snapshot for Comprehensive School Safety (CSS) and Education in Emergencies (EiE) provides a report of country-level information on risk and Comprehensive School Safety. Currently, Snapshots have been developed for more than 15 countries.

The Snapshots provide a baseline for understanding policies, programs, and practices in risk assessment as well as all three pillars of school safety, and include available targets and indicators. The reports are meant to serve as orientation for stakeholders and a reference for humanitarian response.
