The Process Note for Developing Disaster Recovery Frameworks is part of GFDRR’s Disaster Recovery Guidance Series. This Note builds on GFDRR’s Guide to Developing Disaster Recovery Frameworks. It provides advice to senior government officials who face the challenge of mobilizing a recovery effort after a major disaster. It explains the key decisions related to recovery policy, planning, financing, and implementation that contribute to an effective and efficient recovery process. The Process Note reflects the World Bank’s extensive experience in helping governments plan and execute post-disaster recovery programs.
