Guide for post-calamity response

A practical guide for post-calamity response: The Philippine experience

This Guide aims to encourage a positive and proactive approach to post-calamity response. The imagery of a country rising from destruction serves to inspire people to not only hope, but to believe that the ability to rise again lies in their hands.

The Guide aims to raise awareness on the economic and social benefits of using available resources in revitalizing communities and mitigating risks after a disaster. It presents concepts to remember when applying this approach, such as how to conduct rapid assessment after a calamity and how to coordinate with other development actors to ensure the success of
the project.
