This consultative version of the guideline is the product of literature reviews, discussions and contributions from diverse stakeholders, as well as UNISDR-nominated experts appointed specifically for the development of the Words into Action guideline for Build back better in recovery, rehabilitation and reconstruction.
Disaster impacted countries and communities are oftentimes much better equipped to Build Back Better during the extended period of recovery, rehabilitation, and reconstruction when they have taken actions to strengthen recovery capacity and decision-making effectiveness prior to the onset of disaster.
As such, implementation of Priority 4b1 of the Sendai Framework focuses on building this capacity through the creation and strengthening of recovery-focused relationships, the establishment of planning and coordination mechanisms, and the introduction of methods and procedures to ensure recovery activities are adequately informed and supported.
This is the consultative version of the guideline. If you have comments and inputs in relation to this (including further case studies for consideration), please contact the following, UNISDR focal point for this publication adding "Word into Action guideline for BBB" in the subject line:
