I. Overview: Recovery Framework

Planning for long-term reconstruction has to begin early in the recovery phase and involve decisions regarding institutional mechanism for managing reconstruction, availability of financial resources, prioritization of reconstruction activities, monitoring and evaluation system, and public information and communication program just to mention a few. The development of Reconstruction Framework should be based on a thorough and reliable analysis of disaster impacts and recovery needs. Experience shows, that having the recovery framework aligned with national development programs and objectives ensures sustainability and efficient use of resources.
