Background

Damage and Reconstruction Needs Assessment (DRNA) is a specialization course under the Natural Disaster Risk Management Program that offers a set of diagnostic tools to measure the type and extent of damage and losses caused by a specific disaster, identify immediate recovery and longer-term reconstruction needs, and determine the economic and financial implications of the event. This can be used immediately after the emergency stage to assess the direct and indirect effects of a catastrophic event, and its implications for the social well-being and economic performance of the affected area.

The introduction includes a short course description, review of learning objectives and outcomes, and a summary of main issues.
