Comprehensive School Safety (CSS) Policy Case Study: Protecting children in emergencies by law in the Philippines

With a high natural hazard risk and lack of comprehensive policy addressing the wellbeing of children in emergencies, Philippines developed a comprehensive policy of supporting the security and wellbeing of children in emergencies and enacted the Children's Emergency Relief and Protection Act, so as to support the physical and psychological health of children in emergency situations. This case study is part of a series of case studies documenting how countries have been developing and implementing Comprehensive School Safety (CSS) policies that address the three CSS pillars: safer learning facilities (pillar 1), school disaster management (pillar 2), and risk reduction and resilience education (pillar 3).
