Guidance note on recovery: pre-disaster recovery planning

Pre-disaster recovery planning (PDRP) is the pro-active process of anticipating future recovery issues, developing a scenario-based recovery plan, and building the capacity to improve recovery outcomes – all before a disaster happens. Strong evidence, and common sense, indicates that much can be done before a disaster to alleviate recovery planning demands after the disaster.

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.
