  • As part of the emergency relief National Societies implement a wide range shelter responses including tents, tarpaulins and household NFI.
  • Often National Societies are also part of longer term recovery programmes which include repairing and rebuilding permanent houses.

Disaster Recovery Toolkit: Guidance on Critical Facilities

Disaster Recovery Toolkit: Guidance on Critical Facilities

Purpose:

The ‘Toolkit’ is targeted at practitioners responsible for implementing recovery programmes, their objective to provide a ‘how to’ guide on development, implementing and managing complex post-disaster recovery programmes. It has been developed by the Tsunami Global Lessons Learned Project Steering Committee (TGLLP-SC) in partnership with the Asian Disaster Preparedness Centre (ADPC).

Overview:

Ten years have passed since the Indian Ocean Earthquake and Tsunami of December 2004. With a view to gathering, learning and sharing from experiences of the 2004 earthquake and tsunami, and other disasters in the region that occurred between 1993 and 2013, the Tsunami Global Lessons Learned Project (TGLLP) was created. The project sought to deliver three principle outcomes: a global lessons learned study, a Discovery Channel documentary tracking the recovery, and a disaster recovery toolkit for recovery practitioners.

The TGLLP Disaster Recovery Toolkit contains six books that can be downloaded here:

It has been designed for use primarily by managers, decision makers and senior practitioners, including National Society and IFRC personnel who may have had limited experience of recovery but who wish to consider this more actively in disaster response. It aims to promote a common approach to recovery amongst National Societies and IFRC in order to strengthen programme quality in enabling communities to build more resilience as quickly as possible after disasters and crises.

The guidance can be used in conjunction with the IFRC guidelines listed at the end of this summary (page 13-15) and in technical manuals that exist elsewhere.

Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030

Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030

Purpose:

The framework aims to achieve the substantial reduction of disaster risk and losses in lives, livelihoods and health and in the economic, physical, social, cultural and environmental assets of persons, businesses, communities and countries over the next 15 years.

The framework applies to the risk of small-scale and large-scale, frequent and infrequent, sudden and slow-onset disasters, caused by natural or manmade hazards as well as related environmental, technological and biological hazards and risks. It aims to guide the multi-hazard management of disaster risk in development at all levels as well as within and across all sectors.

Overview:

The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 outlines seven clear targets and four priorities for action to prevent new and reduce existing disaster risks: (i) Understanding disaster risk; (ii) Strengthening disaster risk governance to manage disaster risk; (iii) Investing in disaster reduction for resilience and; (iv) Enhancing disaster preparedness for effective response, and to “Build Back Better” in recovery, rehabilitation and reconstruction.

The Framework was adopted at the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Sendai, Japan, on March 18, 2015.

Usage: Policy reference

Guidelines for Integrating Gender-Based Violence Interventions in Humanitarian Action: Reducing risk, promoting resilience and aiding recovery

Guidelines for Integrating Gender-Based Violence Interventions in Humanitarian Action: Reducing risk, promoting resilience and aiding recovery

Purpose

This document provides practical guidance and effective tools for humanitarians and communities to coordinate, plan, implement, monitor and evaluate actions for the prevention and mitigation of gender-based violence throughout all stages of humanitarian response, from preparedness to recovery.

It provides guidelines across 13 thematic areas: camp coordination and camp management; child protection; education; food security and agriculture; health; housing, land and property; humanitarian mine action; livelihoods; nutrition; protection; shelter, settlement and recovery (SS&R); water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH); and humanitarian operations support sectors, focusing on logistics and telecommunications.

Overview

Each thematic area section includes a fold-out summary table for use as a quick reference tool. The table links key recommendations made in the body of each thematic area with guidance on when the recommendations should be applied across four stages of emergency: Pre-emergency/preparedness (before the emergency and during preparedness planning), Emergency (when the emergency strikes), Stabilised Stage (when immediate emergency needs have been addressed), and Recovery to Development (when the focus is on facilitating returns of displaced populations, rebuilding systems and structures, and transitioning to development).

The thematic areas are organised according to five elements of a programme cycle: assessment analysis and planning, resource mobilisation, implementation, coordination and monitoring and evaluation. Each element of the programme cycle is designed to link with and support the other elements. Coordination is presented as a distinct element, but should be considered and integrated throughout the entirety of the programme cycle.

Guiding principles and approaches for addressing gender based violence can be found on pp. 45-48. These include the human rights-based approach, survivor-centred approach, community-based approach and systems approach.

Usage: Guidance for project implementation, Training

Audiences: National society leadership, Technical staff, Gender and diversity practitioners
