Understanding Impact of Floods on Learning Quality, Education Facilities and Recovery in Indonesia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


There is a lack of framework for assessing the impacts of natural hazards, including floods, on education sectors. This research is among the first attempts to adopt the comprehensive school safety (CSS) framework to assess the impact of floods on the loss of quality learning and education infrastructure. The CSS framework is adopted to identify the level of disruptions in education services and their continuity impacted by the floods in the capital city of Indonesia. This article asks three key questions: This research asks three key questions: First, to what extent does a large-scale flood emergency disrupts children's access to quality education and learning? How do children, teachers, and schools cope with disruptions and delays during flood emergencies? How do disaster management policies help schools cope and recover from disasters, including floods? Combining quantitative and qualitative strategies, this article examines the experiences of 100 schools in Jakarta. The findings suggest that the CSS framework provides a more nuanced approach to post-disaster education need assessment. We recommend that this framework is relevant to examining the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on relative losses in the educational sector. We recommend the CSS framework complementing the Post-disaster Need Assessment framework for the education sector
