Post Disaster Needs Assessments

The Post-Disaster Needs Assessments (PDNAs) conducted under the leadership of affected country governments are the most important tasks of the Standby Recovery Financing Facility (SRFF). The flagship products of SRFF are the reports that these assessments generate. These are reports of the respective governments prepared with the assistance of GFDRR and the international community at large. They are increasingly being used by governments and the international development community to base the recovery and reconstruction plans and programs upon. They are also as the base document for discussions to determine international development assistance in cases requiring external assistance including leveraging of targetted or additional assistance from the World Bank and other traditional donors.
