This Rapid Assessment for Resilient Recovery and Reconstruction Planning report is the result of an exercise initiated by the Royal Thai Government to assess the economic and social impact of the 2011 floods and prepare recovery and reconstruction plans.
Twenty-six of the country’s 66 affected provinces were included in the assessment, which examines 18 main sectors and used a comprehensive and internationally established methodology looking at damage and losses caused by the disaster. The report determines the country’s needs for post-disaster recovery and reconstruction and proposes short-, medium-, and long-term measures in each of the 18 sectors for a sustainable post-disaster reconstruction program. Drawing on global good practices for disaster risk management and building-back-better strategies, the report also gives suggestions on how to improve the resilience of the country’s infrastructure and its communities to the impacts of disasters.
