Source(s):  All India Disaster Mitigation Institute (AIDMI)

This issue of on Safety Audit: First Step Towards Making Schools Safer is an example of practical review, evaluation and guidance that results from the shared interests of students, teachers, educational officials, and the wider interests of local community leaders. It synthesises the lessons, and sometimes oversights, of experience as it also provides further guidance for practical measures that can be pursued by communities to make schools safer. It speaks with an informed knowledge and seeks to motivate a wider commitment to making schools safer through recommendations, safety plan process and views of educators. The examples cited by the issue reflect the multiple approaches that contribute to bulding community resilience and which can successfully reduce disaster risks. This issue demonstrates many of the small, practical and cumulative steps that can be employed to create safer schools and communities.
