This guide is intended to demonstrate the value of using built environment professionals more widely in disaster risk reduction and response. It shows how their skills and expertise can be applied at all stages of disaster management. It highlights that their contribution is especially important to achieving the longer-term goal of sustainable recovery and development. The guide is targeted, in particular, at non-technical decision makers in humanitarian agencies.

However, it is also relevant to all international development agencies, governments, at national, sub national and local levels, and non-governmental organisations involved in one or other aspect of disaster management.
