Post-Conflict Engineering - Impact & Needs Assessment
This Collection is part of the 'Post-Conflict Engineering Channel' aimed at improving post-conflict shelter outcomes. It includes technical knowledge on blast impacts on buildings. In parallel, it adopts a self-recovery approach to post-conflict activities.
Impact and Needs Assessments are a preliminary onsite evaluation used in the aftermath of conflicts. The assessment is performed to record the extent of damage and to appraise what can be replaced, restored or salvaged. Further, it may also be used to estimate the time required to complete tasks. Impact assessments are integral to facilitating effective and efficient responses to relief operations such as evacuation, shelter, search and rescue and mass casualty management.
