Abstract/Summary This paper presents a practice framework for the development and delivery of school-based disaster resilience (DRE) education in the Australian national context. The purpose of the framework is to provide Australian emergency management agencies with a strategic, evidence-based approach to the development of DRE programs that reduce risk, increase resilience and can be implemented at scale. The framework is comprised of three guiding principles (Collaboration and Partnership, Protection and Participation, and Diversity and Equity) and three core dimensions (Design, Implementation, Evaluation). The structure and content of the framework has been informed by current international and national policy frameworks, existing DRE practice guidelines, and peer-reviewed research evidence. It has also been informed by consultations with representatives from the emergency management and education sectors. The framework should be viewed as a work-in-progress, which as it evolves, can assist in building capacity for best practice in DRE. To this end, the authors welcome and encourage critical feedback and commentary from both key stakeholders and the wider public.
