Culture in City Reconstruction and Recovery

This paper serves as a guide for development practitioners, particularly the World Bank and UNESCO teams operating on the ground, as well as national and local authorities, planners, and international organizations to integrate culture, both as an asset and as a tool, in all phases of city reconstruction and recovery. The paper consists of three parts that analyze the evolution of reconstruction and recovery frameworks in recent decades, introduce in detail a dedicated framework for Culture in City Reconstruction and Recovery, together with key guiding principles, and provide operational guidance for their implementation.
