Nepal: Comprehensive school safety implementation guidelines 2075

Source(s):  Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoE)

The overall objective of this document is to guide the operationalization of Nepal’s Comprehensive School Safety (CSS) Minimum Package in a systematic and strategic way, including by specifying the roles and responsibilities of stakeholders to promote the minimum level of school safety at all levels of public and private schools, including early childhood development centres. The Minimum Package envisages critical activities that schools can manage to reduce risks. It categorizes essential school safety activities based on the pillars of safe learning facilities, school disaster management, and risk reduction and resilience education.

The specific objectives of the guidelines are as follows:

  • To improve the safety of schools’ physical infrastructure through construction, reconstruction and retrofitting that addresses potential hazard risks.
  • To facilitate the mainstreaming and institutionalization of disaster risk management in school education in federal, provincial and local governments and schools.
  • To provide a reference guide to develop and integrate CSS into curricula and teaching-learning practices and to disseminate related guidance to students, teachers, school management committees and parent-teachers associations.
  • To support institutional capacity and readiness in the education sector to meet the above objectives.

These guidelines categorize CSS activities based on the respective roles of schools and local governments for local planning, budgeting, and monitoring and evaluation (M&E).
