This manual seeks to support a culture of safer school construction and to reduce the risk of catastrophic failure for spaces of education and refuge. In addition to outlining methods of post-earthquake damage assessment, the document provides guidance for the structural and non-structural retrofitting of schools. Diagrams illustrate reinforced concrete details, steel connections, and corrective measures for cracks in walls and other components. Methods are informed by experiences and practices in Indonesia.
