Post-Disaster Needs Assessment

UN Development Group (UNDG), the World Bank (WB) and the European Union (EU) have collaborated on the development of a joint Post-Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA) tool. This tool represents a harmonized and coordinated approach, providing for an objective, comprehensive and government-led assessment of the post disaster damages, losses and recovery needs, and paving the way for a consolidated recovery framework. In order to facilitate and enable the use of the PDNA by practitioners, the following guide has been prepared by the UNDG, the WB and EU. The guide streamlines and standardizes an assessment methodology, which would cover all sectors and maintain a balance between different aspects of recovery.
