Towards A Learning Culture of Safety and Resilience Technical Guidance for Integrating Disaster Risk Reduction in the School Curriculum

This technical guidance encourages the incorporation of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) insights and criteria into DRR curriculum review and development. This allows for a better coverage of all five dimensions of DRR education, considering that up to now, dimensions 3, 4 and 5 are less frequently or rarely addressed within DRR curricula. It also situates DRR education as compatible with Climate Change Education and as part of Quality Education, Lifeskills Education and Child-friendly Education. This technical guidance also recognizes the importance of adopting a holistic risk and resilience education framework. In addition to looking at natural hazards, this framework looks at manmade hazards that the education sector faces, such as violent conflicts. While not covering this topic in detail, the technical guidance supports the integration of conflict risk reduction education and DRR education. The methods and tools in this technical guidance can be easily adapted and applied to conflict/disaster risk reduction education (C/DRRE).
