The European Union, the UN Development Group, and the World Bank have collaborated on the development of guides for conducting Post Disaster Needs Assessments (PDNA) and for preparing Disaster Recovery Frameworks (DRF). Both guides are based on good practices and experiences from around the world, and are intended to coalesce international and local support behind a single, government-led post disaster recovery process.

 

The PDNA Guidelines and the DRF Guide are complementary tools that are designed to avoid the duplication of efforts, streamline the recovery process and provide an evidence base for resource mobilization.
