Crisis situations often impact local infrastructure including private homes and those used for commercial and public services. One of the most complicated and important components of the recovery process is the rapid and effective restoration of these structures.
UNDP has developed a Household and Building Damage Assessment (HBDA) Toolkit to support authorities in crisis-affected countries around the world, to assess residential and non-residential infrastructure and collect timely data to inform decisions. The HBDA will also inform prioritization for risk-informed rehabilitation and rebuilding.

Interactive Data Visualisation
Information collected during the HBDA is visualised by Microsoft Power BI, an intelligence platform used for the analysis and visualisation of data.
The further analysis of all these data can assist governments in prioritizing for faster recovery, monitoring, policy-making and disaster preparedness.
