Transport sector recovery: Opportunities to build resilience

World Bank, the (WB)

This guidance note is intended to provide action-oriented guidance to government officials facing post-disaster recovery challenges related to the transport sector. The guidance note frames the scope of recovery work, including the administrative elements for setting up a planned and organized recovery of the transport sector, the implementation activities required to restore the transport network, and recommendations for investing in systems preparedness and physical asset resilience.

The guidance note offers best practices, case studies, and tools that can help transport officials identify entry points for building resilience and building back better, as well as guidance for how to undertake a more effective and better-coordinated recovery of the transport sector. The guidance note is not meant to be prescriptive nor represent actions that are appropriate across all disaster scenarios or cultural, governmental, and socioeconomic contexts. Rather, it is meant to offer critical considerations along with guidance and best practices from which an appropriate response may be formulated.
