Disaster Recovery Framework Guide for the Energy Sector
In the aftermath of a disaster or conflict, a critical follow-up to a post-disaster needs assessment (PDNA) is the elaboration of a more detailed Disaster Recovery Framework (DRF) for each sector identified in the PDNA. A DRF outlines the recovery policy, institutional arrangements and recovery cost estimates along with the project implementation mechanisms.
The Disaster Recovery Framework Guide for the Energy Sector is a companion document to the main DRF Guide, with emphasis on the energy sector. The Guide provides action-oriented guidance to assist senior national and local government advisors/senior-level planners, relevant private sector leaders, intergovernmental organizations and implementing partners to execute effective and efficient energy-focused recovery programmes.
The Guide emphasizes that recovery programming focusing on the energy sector can play a critical role in poverty reduction and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, and ensuring that affected people maintain their living standards, working conditions, environment and health during and after disasters, and build resilience over time. Mitigating risk exposure and strengthening the resilience of energy systems is the best way to protect the most vulnerable, beat back poverty, and promote shared and sustained growth.
This Guide provides a discussion and detailed recommendations on recovery policy, institutional arrangements, financial mechanisms and implementation.
