Step 1

School Infrastructure Baseline

To establish a baseline and determine the condition and capacity of existing school infrastructure.  

Normal Condition

At the end of this step, the team should be able to do the following:
a) Establish the baseline of school facilities to be analyzed.
b) Identify the main characteristics, condition and capacity of existing school facilities
c) Identify opportunities to manage school infrastructure information within the sectors Management Information System (MIS) 

Module Activity Output

 1.1 Inventory of existing school facilities

1.1.1 Compile and organize available information about school facilities

- Database & report: Available information about school facilities

- Mapping of agencies involved in school infrastructure data management

1.2 School facility baseline

1.2.1 Define the structure of the baseline and create a field inspection plan

- Database and report: Georeferenced attributes on school facilities that are required for quantitative vulnerability and risk assessments

- Catalog: Building types and index buildings

- Training materials

 

1.2.2 Carry out a field inspection campaign  

1.2.3 Identify building types and index buildings

1.2.4 Establish the baseline of school facilities to be analyzed   

1.3 School infrastructure network integration 

1.3.1 Compile and organize available geospatial information about the urban/rural context in which school infrastructure operates

- Database and report: Georeferenced attributes of the school territorial integration

1.4 Exposure of existing school facilities to natural hazards

1.4.1 Identify the natural hazards to which school infrastructure is exposed

- Maps and report: Overlapping layers of hazard maps and school facilities

1.4.2 Identify the building types exposed to natural hazards

1.5 Management of school infrastructure data

1.5.1 Integrate the baseline into an existing or new MIS

- Baseline accessible in a management information system

 

Post-disaster Condition

At the end of this step, the team should be able to do the following:­

a) Consolidate the damage assessment data relative to affected school buildings and facilities
b) Establish the baseline of school facilities to be included in the recovery and reconstruction plan in the affected area
c) Identify the main characteristics, condition and capacity of existing school facilities                                                     d) Identify opportunities to manage school infrastructure information within the sectors Management Information System (MIS) 

Module Activity Output
1.1 Inventory of existing school facilities  1.1.1 Compile and organize available information about school facilities in the disaster-affected area

- Database and report: Available information about school facilities including results of rapid visual assessments conducted in the disaster-affected area (after disaster) 

- Mapping of agencies involved in school infrastructure data management 

1.2 School facility baseline 1.2.1 Define the structure of the baseline and create a field inspection plan for the damage assessment

- Database and report: Georeferenced attributes of school facilities that are required for the vulnerability and risk assessments.      Include georeferenced attributes of the condition and capacity of school facilities after disaster to inform the recovery and reconstruction plan

- Catalog: Building types and index buildings

- Training materials

1.2.2 Perform damage assessment of school facilities in the disaster-affected area
1.2.3 Identify building types and index buildings
1.2.4 Establish the baseline of school facilities to be included in the recovery and reconstruction plan
1.3 School infrastructure network integration 1.3.1 Compile and organize available geospatial information about the urban/rural context in which   school infrastructure operates - Database and report: Georeferenced attributes of the school territorial integration 
1.4 Exposure of existing school facilities to natural hazards 1.4.1 Identify the natural hazards to which school infrastructure is exposed  Maps and report: Overlapping layers of hazard maps and school facilities in the disaster-affected area 
1.4.2 Identify the building types exposed to natural hazards 
1.5 Management of school infrastructure data  1.5.1 Integrate the baseline into an existing or new MIS - Baseline accessible in a management information system
