Employment, Livelihoods and Social Protection: Guide for recovery implementation

This Employment, Livelihood and Social Protection Guide for Recovery Implementation (“ELSP Recovery Guide”) is a focused and succinct doers’ manual in the ELSP domain. Multi-sector programmes towards economic reactivation and generation of employment for livelihood recovery are the focus for any Post-Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA) and Disaster Recovery Framework (DRF) exercise, charting out a disaster recovery and disaster risk reduction (DRR) roadmap.

The ELSP Recovery Guide is meant to be used after undertaking a PDNA exercise. It aligns with the PDNA Guidelines (Volume B) for the estimated effects and impacts of a disaster on the cross-cutting ELSP sector, factoring in the assessed damage and loss to infrastructure, productive and social sectors.
