In Kazakhstan, 3-4 thousand emergency situations happen annually with 3-5 thousand victims, a dozen deaths and 16 billion tenge worth of damage. It is known that geophysical phenomena such as earthquakes are permanent. However, climate change exacerbates the situation: floods, storms, droughts occur more often; there is a shortage of most types of resources: food and water. Disasters affect vulnerable citizens the most, with children typically accounting for 50% of the affected population. Children suffer from infringement of their rights, separation from their families, and difficult access to services.
In 2017 in Kazakhstan, 1,283 children died from external causes, including 449 children who died from burns and fires.
In Kazakhstan, neither in a state, nor in any other organization, there is a database, review nor analysis of standard design solutions for school buildings in terms of seismic safety. To monitor the accident rate and structural safety of schools, a single archival database of project documentation of school buildings is required. This information can also complement the National Educational Database (NED) of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan. It contains several informative forms on various characteristics, including substandard school form, which is missing the abovementioned data.
