Post disaster needs assessment (PDNA) Brochure
The PDNA is a mechanism for joint assessment and recovery planning following a disaster. Through this mechanism, the parties involved seek to assess the impact of a disaster and define a strategy for recovery, including the estimation of financial resources required. It pulls together information on the socio-economic aspects of damages, effects (economic losses, disaster caused changes in service delivery,
governance and risk), impacts and needs, as well as highlights recovery priorities
from a human recovery perspective. The cumulative result is a consolidated report
that lends to a resilient recovery strategy.
