The GADRRRES Ad Hoc Committee on CSS Targets and Indicators is leading in this effort.

Worldwide Initiative for School Safety (WISS)

The Worldwide Initiative for Safe Schools (WISS) is a government-led global partnership that aims at securing political commitment and fostering safe schools implementation globally. WISS motivates and supports Governments to develop and implement national school safety policies, plans and programs in combination with the three technical aspects of Comprehensive School Safety.  

The Worldwide Initiative offers technical assistance and particular expertise to support interested Governments in implementing Comprehensive School Safety at the national level, and promotes good practices and achievements in safe school implementation for replication in other countries and regions. See the WISS Brochure and the WISS Action Plan for further details.
