Methodological Guide for Post-Disaster Recovery Planning Processes: Guidelines and Actions for National, Regional and Local Governments

Published by: UNDP, 2011

This guide seeks to contribute to building the operational and programmatic capacities of national, regional and local governments in the early management of post-disaster recovery, with a sustainability-based approach by:

  • offering public, private and community decision- makers and stakeholders a new vision – that of recovery – to face and lead post-disaster processes;
  • arguing for the relevance and effectiveness of doing recovery planning before a disaster occurs, based on identifying those policies or actions that must appear in their institutional plans and budgets; and
  • developing a recovery planning methodological guide that makes it possible to effectively and properly lead the pre and post-disaster processes.
