Reducing risk, promoting resilience and aiding recovery

Safety Mapping Exercise Tool

The goal of safety mapping is to capture local knowledge and social perceptions about risk and safety on a map. The map should show places significant to the community, highlight those places important to them and specify where community members feel safe. Often the process of making the map—finding out about the local context and different views on what should go on the map—is just as important as the information the map contains. Safety maps are not drawn to scale and are not meant to be a complete overview of the camp.
