This Guidance Note aims to provide action-oriented guidance to local and national government officials, key decision-makers and other stakeholders on ways to encourage, enable and facilitate successful private sector participation in post-disaster recovery.
The Guidance Note also lays out the case for private sector participation in disaster recovery and mitigation by providing case studies and examples. This Note is divided into four sections:
- The first section introduces the notion of private sector participation in disaster recovery and mitigation (p. 2);
- The second section explains the rationale for private sector involvement (p. 11);
- The third section discusses and maps the existing forms of private sector participation in disaster recovery and mitigation (p. 16); and
- The fourth section highlights common challenges and provides guidance for governments about the key elements for successful private sector participation in disaster recovery efforts (p. 20).
