Learning Lessons from Disaster Recovery: The Case of Mozambique

Disaster risk management working paper series No.12

A review of lessons learned from recovery after major natural disasters analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of recovery assistance from governments, donors, and civil society after the disasters occurred. Mozambique offers an example of a post-conflict country faced with major natural disasters, and also offers an example of recovery in an extremely poor and primarily subsistence livelihood population, but in a country favored by donors and receiving substantial amounts of both relief and recovery assistance. The review provides an overview of the recovery processes and highlights livelihoods and agriculture.
