Resilient Schools and Youth
GeoHazards International’s experience in school disaster resilience extends back to our first project in Quito, Ecuador, which began in 1992. Since then, we have worked in more than a dozen countries, plus the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC).
Our work spans safe schools policy, vulnerability assessment of school buildings, retrofit design and construction, mitigation of potential falling objects, and emergency planning. Our programs have trained students, educators and parents. We also empower youth to become leaders in their community’s resilience.
