This issue of Southasiadisasters.net focuses on the innovations in service delivery and the lessons learnt in carrying out the Comprehensive School Safety and Security Programme (CSSSP) in India. A collaboration between UNICEF and many state governments, the CSSSP is unique as it has focused not only on addressing disaster risk reduction (DRR) concerns but also child protection concerns.
As the CSSSP has been rolled out in 5 states of India, many lessons on programme design, delivery, stakeholder management, scaling-up and sustainability have been learnt. This issue is a compendium of such lessons that have been captured as knowledge resources to aid other government and nongovernment actors who intend to start similar programmes in India to improve the safety and security of it's children.
