Delayed recovery from large-scale natural disasters prolong the suffering of disaster affected people due to internal displacement, lack of shelter, delayed restoration of essential services and vastly diminished means of livelihood. Although tools such as the post disaster needs assessment (PDNA) and other such assessments provide a solid basis for recovery needs quantification and broad strategy formulation, governments need greater support in the post-PDNA phase through better instruments, standards etc. for implementing and managing recovery, particularly in the areas of recovery strategy, planning and project management. Recent disaster situations in Japan (Fukushima), Chile (Earthquake), New Zealand (Christchurch Earthquake) and floods in Thailand among several others have led to the identification of good practices and success stories on planning and programming recovery that can be replicated to similar disaster situations. There is a need for a consolidated knowledge product such as a globally applicable and “practice-based” guide for preparing Disaster Recovery Frameworks. Such a guide will be helpful to governments and other implementation actors in the prioritization, detailed planning, implementation and monitoring of disaster recovery. For such a tool to be readily applicable to a myriad of different post disaster settings and conditions, it needs to be flexible and be based on a systematic consolidation of global good practices for achieving effective and resilient recovery.
