Housing and Settlements Recovery

This Housing and Settlements Guidance Note has been prepared to assist governments confronting the challenge of housing and settlements recovery after a major disaster. It aims to increase the efficiency and effectiveness and ultimately improve the outcome of housing recovery programs. Government leadership in the months following the disaster will determine whether housing recovery is timely and whether disaster-affected households are safer and stable afterward. The Note demonstrates and provides examples of how key decisions on policy, planning, financial management, and implementation contribute to development of a Housing Sector Recovery Plan and successful housing recovery.
