This book outlines the complex changes that result from post-disaster reconstruction and their impacts on local communities - highlighting communities' roles in the reconstruction processes. It shows how communities deal with and respond to various external interventions and also explains how to choose between different post-disaster reconstruction strategies for greater community resiliency and disaster risk reduction. Focusing on housing reconstruction and restoration of livelihoods, the authors demonstrate that changes in settlement location and morphology as well as housing materials and design entail multiple consequences for the inhabitants of reconstructed settlements.
