Disaster Recovery Frameworks

In 2014, GFDRR, in partnership with the EU, UNDP, and the World Bank, launched the Guide to Developing Disaster Recovery Frameworks (or DRF Guide). What makes the DRF Guide unique is that it offers a flexible methodology that countries can adapt to their own context in order to create a national framework that will help them rebuild and recover. The Guide not only helps governments create disaster-recovery frameworks to facilitate a smooth recovery process, but also aims to improve resilience for the future.

As a truly global, dynamic knowledge document, the Guide incorporates new lessons learned from recovery efforts. The DRF Guide also gleaned recovery experiences from eight country case studies – Bangladesh, Haiti, Lao PDR, Mozambique, Pakistan, Philippines, Senegal, and Yemen – and from other good practices from around the world.

The Guide to Developing Disaster Recovery Frameworks can be found here. Country-level Disaster Recovery Frameworks that have been produced using the DRF Guide methodology are listed below.
