School recovery: lessons from Asia

This publication provides a compilation of 25 case studies of schools from 12 countries affected by 6 different hazards in an effort to understand the recovery processes of schools from natural disasters. It links the recovery lessons to the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) in the education sector (E-HFA) through sixteen tasks that constitute a framework for the integrated approach of disaster risk reduction in schools. It goes beyond the school building or education, and looks at the comprehensive way of disaster risk reduction in the education sector.

Although the case examples come from different countries and different socio-economic backgrounds, few common elements are identified, which can be applied to future cases of school recovery, including those from Tohoku Region in Japan, which was significantly affected by the 2011 East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Disaster.
