Key considerations for disability inclusion in school disaster management:

  • Include children with disabilities in school disaster management committees.
  • Ensure meaningful participation of students with disabilities in school and local community hazard mapping, while practicing safety rules for specific hazards, conducting regular school-wide and community-linked simulation drills, and action-planning for ongoing risk reduction and preparedness activities.
  • Identify students with disabilities to be appointed as school-based DRR focal-points and trained as leaders and champions of school safety.
