Disaster risk reduction in education in emergencies: a guidance note for education clusters and sector coordination groups

This guidance note recommends strategies aimed to boost prevention, mitigation and preparedness. Recommended strategies and practical steps are delineated along three levels - national, sub-national and school / community. The strategies and steps are then grouped into two categories: 1) before an emergency and 2) during emergency response and recovery. Some steps in one category may also be applicable for the other. Examples of good practices accompany the Guidance Note at each level and category.
