Role of Regional Organizations in Disaster Recovery Planning

An effort was launched in January of 2012 to conduct a needs and capacity assessment of select regional organizations to identify the support required for developing and/or strengthening of pre-disaster capacities for recovery planning and for maintaining a roster of experts on pre-disaster recovery planning. This report, which is the product of desk research, stakeholder workshops, surveys, and interviews, is the product of that effort, and details the following: The need for pre- and post-disaster recovery planning; An overview of the regional recovery planning mechanisms presently in place; An assessment of the need for increased disaster recovery planning capacity building at the regional and national levels; An assessment of the present capacities and associated activities of select regional organizations in pursuit of member country capacity development (in the area of recovery planning); Recommendations for the creation of regional recovery planning and technical assistance frameworks
