International Recovery Platform

Early recovery framework


Early recovery is about shifting the focus from saving lives to restoring livelihoods, thus effectively preventing recurrence of disasters and harnessing conditions for human development. One month after the 8 October 2005 earthquake struck northern Pakistan, a number of activities have been initiated in support of the speedy recovery of the affected population, concurrently with ongoing humanitarian and life-saving operations. This Early Recovery Framework has been formulated to inform and support the national strategy for reconstruction and rehabilitation, with assistance from the United Nations (UN) system as well as selected non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and other international partners in Pakistan.
