Disasters and conflicts have devastating economic and social impacts and pose enormous setbacks to human security and development. Education has a vital role to play in minimizing such effects, as it can contribute to building resilience to disasters and conflicts and enhancing capacities to adapt to a changing climate and context. While many natural hazards and conflicts are outside of the education sector’s control, education can help countries in the region mitigate their effects, by ensuring that school communities and education systems are able to effectively prepare for, respond to, and properly recover in the aftermath of disasters. To do so, it is essential for education systems to adopt policies and plans that maximize their own resilience to disasters and conflict. This group aims at connecting education planners who are interested in crisis-sensitive educational planning to strengthen resilience, social cohesion and comprehensive school safely in Asia-Pacific to exchange information, questions, documents and announcements.
