PDNA GUIDELINES VOLUME B - Employment, Livelihood & Social Protection

This chapter provides general guidance on conducting post-disaster needs assessment (PDNA) and recovery planning for Employment, Livelihoods and Social Protection (ELSP). It outlines how to assess and estimate the effects and impact of disasters on ELSP and provides recommendations for reactivating economic activities and employment for recovery of livelihoods. ELSP is treated as a particular topic in this chapter. However, specific recovery needs related to overall economic recovery and recovery of permanent sources of employment and livelihoods in the social and productive sectors are also treated in the respective sector chapters of the PDNA Guidelines.
