IRP Pre-Disaster Recovery Planning
Pre-Disaster Recovery Planning was developed by the International Recovery Platform (IRP) to present a series of steps to initiate and sustain pre disaster recovery planning. IRP acknowledges the leading work of Darren Hertz, the consultant who facilitated this guidance note and Sanjaya Bhatia, Knowledge Management Officer of IRP (UNISDR).
The purpose of this guidance note is to present a series of steps to initiate and sustain pre disaster recovery planning. IRP hopes that the content of this guidance note will help government officials working in small communities or across an entire nation, to define and follow a process to pre plan for disaster recovery, and thereby strengthen their own future recovery efforts and outcomes.
This document offers guidance on developing a planning framework. However, it does not present issues, strategies, or actions specific to a given sector such as health, housing, or infrastructure.
