Comprehensive School Safety Framework 2022-2030 for Child Rights and Resilience in the Education Sector
The Comprehensive School Safety Framework (CSSF) 2022- 2030 supports education sector policymakers, planners, school administrators, and their partners to promote child rights, sustainability, and resilience in the education sector. The framework provides a comprehensive approach to resilience and safety from all hazards and all risks confronting education and child protection sector populations, systems, and programs. It supports access, quality, and management strategies in the education sector.
The CSSF was revised in the face of growing evidence of the acceleration of the climate crisis globally and other emerging risks (e.g., COVID-19, new conflict dynamics) impacting education globally. Increased awareness and understanding of these risks and their interconnectedness have already led to major transformations in planning processes and resource allocation in the education sector, which the CSSF seeks to reflect.
The CSSF, initially elaborated in 2012, was previously revised in 2016 to align with the three “post-2015” agendas (Agenda 2030, the Paris Agreement, and the Sendai Framework), with support from the Global Alliance for Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience in the Education Sector (GADRRRES) and the 60+ countries that endorsed the Worldwide Initiative for Safe Schools (WISS) between 2015 and 2017.
The targets and indicators are intended to guide policy and program development and stimulate monitoring and evaluation of progress toward risk reduction and resilience in the education sector.
