Towards Safer School Construction: A Community-based Approach is a guide for individuals and program managers involved in school construction. The guide is particularly useful when communities will be taking part in school construction, when local construction is not disaster-resistant, or when schools are being reconstructed after a disaster.
The guide explains how a community-based approach to school construction can make sure every school built is a safe one. It explains how to engage with the community through the stages of construction, and how schools, communities and technical experts can work together to:
- Raise community awareness about hazards
- Build local abilities for safer construction
- Create a culture of safety within and around schools.
