The purpose of this work is to identify trends in Comprehensive School Safety (CSS)-related policies in the Asia-Pacific region with attention to factors that may facilitate or block the development or implementation of policies yielding positive outcomes.
CSS aims to protect students, ensure educational continuity, safeguard sector investments, and strengthen community risk reduction and resilience through education. It is crucial to ensure that national and sub-national policies support CSS goals and that such policies are well implemented. In-depth analysis of CSS-related policies and policy gaps in the Asia-Pacific region can provide needed insight to government actors on how to better design or shore up policy approaches to risk reduction and resilience in the education sector.
