After Great Disasters

This report distills lessons from six countries that have faced significant disaster recovery challenges and employed different management approaches. A set of recommendations provides guidance to governments faced with the challenges of recovering from a large disaster. The recommendations reflect a common set of core principles: primacy of information, stakeholder involvement, and transparency. If done well, reconstruction can help break the cycle of disaster-related impacts and losses, and improve the resilience of a city or region.
