The aftermath of great natural disasters and the management of the recovery process have an enormous effect on the lives of citizens and can change the future of a city or region forever.
This report identifies lessons from six countries that have faced significant disaster recovery challenges and employed different management approaches: China, New Zealand, Japan, India, Indonesia, and the United States. Each of these governments withstood considerable uncertainty and had to balance the tensions between speed and deliberation, between restoration and betterment.
Through examining these case studies, the authors offer recovery recommendations that reflect a set of core principles: primacy of information, stakeholder involvement, and transparency.
