Cases and Practices on Role of Community in Recovery
This compilation presents different cases of post disaster recovery highlighting the role of community. Involvement of community in the overall process of determining what is to be done, how it is to be done, who it is to benefit, and how to implement decisions to ―build back better‖ are emphasized.
Most of the cases are originally told in local languages, and IRP took the initiative of translating them to English to make them available to global audience. Additionally, this compilation addresses knowledge gaps in recovery, especially in the context of community involvement. Experiences and lessons presented in the case studies are intended for dissemination to various stakeholders to provide further guidance and options for replication. It complements other knowledge products developed by IRP accessible at www.recoveryplatform.org.
