Disaster Recovery Frameworks
Women involved in community meeting to discuss village reconstruction

Disaster recovery frameworks enable countries to drive a process forward that unites all government, private sector, donors, development partners, and community efforts with a focus on building back stronger, faster and more inclusively over the short, medium to long term timeframes of recovery. The DRF helps in articulating a vision for recovery; defining a strategy; prioritizing actions; fine-tuning planning; and providing guidance on financing, implementing, and monitoring the recovery. Depending on the scale of recovery required, the framework should be developed within a month or max 45 days after a disaster, or ideally before a disaster occurs.

Expected outcomes of implementing recovery frameworks are:

  1. Informed institutional and policy-setting for recovery.
  2. Prioritization and programming based on an inclusive, transparent process that ensures participation of all stakeholders and uses national and international good practices.
  3. Effective coordination among all parties during the recovery and reconstruction processes.
  4. Comprehensive framework for recovery financing.
  5. Improved implementation and monitoring and evaluation systems for recovery programs.
