Guidance note: National post-disaster recovery planning and coordination

Source(s):  United Nations Development Programme - Headquarters (UNDP)

The main objective of this Guidance Note on National Post-Disaster Recovery Planning and Coordination is to provide practical advice to UNDP Country Offices on how to design and implement recovery initiatives that will strengthen government capacity to lead and manage national recovery efforts in the early, medium and long-term. 

This document emphasizes all three phases of disaster recovery and the need to understand that much like in development work, there are no quick fixes in recovery and concerted efforts to rebuild sustainable societies require long-term investments.

This Guidance Note will help Country Offices as they position UNDP’s support to host governments in the wake of a major disaster and through the entire recovery process so that sustainable disaster recovery strategies can be delivered effectively at the country level.
