Responding to urban disasters: Learning from previous relief and recovery operations (ALNAP, 2012)

This 2012 ALNAP paper on urban lessons was written by David Sanderson, Paul Knox-Clarke and Leah Campbell and builds off a prior 2009 study written by Ian O’Donnell, Kristin Smart and Ben Ramalingam. It offers lessons pertaining to effective design and implementation of urban-response programs. It was written to serve as a practical field resource for international disaster management professionals, but also may be utilized by local and national governement and civil society stakeholders.

Major disasters Typhoon Ketsana in the Philippines (2009), the 2010 Hait earthquake, and the recent 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan inform much of the learning shared in the report.
