The DaLA guidance notes presented here build on ECLAC's methodology. They aim at operationalizing the concepts for practitioners at government agencies, the World Bank and other national and international organizations responsible for assesing the impact of disasters, and for developing recovery and reconstruction plans. Furthermore, the DaLA guidance notes expand the original ECLAC methdology by describing how to estimate recovery and reconstruction needs.
