Rollout manual for operationalisation of ASEAN Common Framework for Comprehensive School Safety

Purpose:

The rollout manual primarily aims to assist country focal agencies on school safety (e.g. Ministry of Education and National Disaster Management Office) in translating the conceptual framework into implementable actions through detailed steps to generate the outputs, key actors, and timelines, as well as elaboration on working mechanisms at national and regional level for school safety.

The manual shall be used as a reference for education authorities, government agencies, local authorities with mandates relevant to education and DRR, and who are tasked with planning, implementing, and monitoring school safety-related activities.

The manual also aims to bring all concerned agencies and stakeholders to a uniform understanding of the framework operationalisation, which highlights inter-linked processes within the 15-year timeframe, coinciding with the completion of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR).

With this overall sketch for operationalisation, concerned agencies, potential partners and stakeholders at national, regional and global level shall be in a better position to determine their roles in supporting, facilitating, or coordinating with various activities during operationalisation.

Overview:

The operationalisation of the ASEAN Common Framework for Comprehensive School Safety entails 4 key activities done in a cyclical process:

  • Activity 1 – Assessing current status, gaps and needs
  • Activity 2 – Setting country priorities and targets
  • Activity 3 – Developing Country Action Plan on school safety
  • Activity 4 – Developing and undertaking progress monitoring and impact evaluation (the results of which will be fed into Activity 1 of the next operationalisation phase/period)

 

Usage: Guidance for implementation

Audience: School safety practitioners

ASEAN Common Framework for Comprehensive School Safety

Purpose:

The ASEAN Common Framework for Comprehensive School Safety is extracted from the global Comprehensive School Safety (CSS) Framework, and it contains details to guide education ministries and National Disaster Management Offices (NDMOs) towards more intensified action on school safety.

Contextualised for ASEAN members to operationalise the global framework, this framework addresses the need for the development of a mechanism to effectively operationalise the CSS framework at the regional, national, and sub-national levels.

Overview:

The framework aims to achieve the same targets as with the Comprehensive School Safety Framework. To ensure certain uniformity of progress monitoring indicators for school safety, a set of monitoring indicators has been developed, which could serve as minimum standard for countries implementing the Framework, comprising:

  • 6 output indicators to track the impact on school safety at the national using quantifiable data collected at school level
  • 14 input indicators to track school safety interventions and impacts at school level.

 

In addition to discussing about the school safety in the ASEAN region, the document also discusses about framework, its key elements and the mechanisms of cooperation on the framework at national and regional levels.

Usage: Guidance for implementation

Audience: School safety practitioners

Comprehensive School Safety

Purpose:

This framework provides a comprehensive approach to reducing risks from all hazards to the education sector. The past decade has brought children’s advocates together:

  • To promote disaster risk reduction (Hyogo Framework for Action 2005-2015) throughout the education sector along with education for sustainable development (International Decade for Education for Sustainable Development)
  • To assure universal access to quality basic education in a safe environment (Millennium Development Goals, Education for All, Global Partnership for Education, Education First, Global Coalition to Prevent Education from Attack).
  • To incorporate risk reduction into Millennium Development Goals for education. At the core of these child-centered, child-participatory, and evidence-based efforts is the recognition of children’s rights to survival and protection as well as to education and participation.

The purpose of this Comprehensive School Safety Framework is to bring these efforts into a clear and unified focus in order for education sector partners to work more effectively, and to link with similar efforts in all other sectors at the global, regional, national and local levels.

Overview:

A global framework in support of The Global Alliance for Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience in the Education Sector and The Worldwide Initiative for Safe Schools.

Usage: Guideline for implementation

Target: National Societies
