The IFRC and Save the Children are both members of the Global Alliance for Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience in the Education Sector. The alliance aims to ensure all schools are safe from disaster risks and that all learners can live in a culture of safety.

The alliance promotes a comprehensive approach to disaster risk reduction education through their Comprehensive School Safety Framework. The framework is made up of three pillars: safe learning facilities, school disaster management and risk reduction education.
