Build Back Better in Recovery, Rehabilitation and Reconstruction (consultative version)

Disaster impacted countries and communities are often times much better equipped to Build Back Better during the extended period of recovery, rehabilitation, and reconstruction when they have taken actions to strengthen recovery capacity and decision-making effectiveness prior to the onset of disaster. As such, implementation of Priority 4b [of the Sendai Framework] focuses on building this capacity through the creation and strengthening of recovery-focused relationships, the establishment of planning and coordination mechanisms, and the introduction of methods and procedures to ensure recovery activities are adequately informed and supported.
