The International Recovery Platform (IRP), Asian Disaster Reduction Center (ADRC), Hyogo Prefectural Government, and United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction Global Education and Training Institute (UNISDR-GETI) in collaboration with the Office of Civil Defense Department of National Defense (OCD-DND) Philippines had facilitated a Workshop on Disaster Recovery Planning, 19-21 February 2014 at Crown Regency Hotel in Cebu City, Philippines. The main objective of the workshop was to provide technical assistance in formulating the recovery plans of local governments impacted by super typhoon Haiyan (local name Yolanda). Along with experts from its member organizations, IRP shared a collection of global experiences and lessons on disaster recovery, which served as reference in establishing a temporal link between preparedness, recovery, and sustainable development. The workshop was also aimed at strengthening the local capacities for integrating disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA) in disaster recovery planning and long-term development programming.
