The Post-disaster needs assessment (PDNA) Guidelines have been developed to provide technical support to practitioners as they plan for and implement the needs assessment and design the recovery framework. Volume A provides a general overview of the PDNA framework and process. Volume B provides sector-specific guidance for all the sectors that could potentially be covered by a PDNA, depending on the context and the scale of the disaster.

Gender has been identified as an important cross-cutting issue in PDNAs. This document covers the following steps:

  • Assessment process;
  • Pre-disaster situation; 
  • Assessment of disaster effects;
  • Estimating the value of the effects of the disaster;
  • Assessment of disaster impact;
  • Cross-sectoral linkages including cross-cutting issues;
  • The sector recovery strategy.
