Building Back Better. Delivering people-centred housing reconstruction at scale

This volume debates and informs on themes such as housing, participation, and vulnerability in relation to large-scale post-disaster reconstruction. It is a contribution to ongoing debate in terms of agency response and professional responsibilities in post-disaster reconstruction, and about participation and development. Part One of the book set the scene, exploring the evolution, effectiveness and approaches for people-centred reconstruction, thereafter the rest of the book is devoted to the critical presentation of ten case studies. The case studies reveal the active role and strengths of the newly established civil organizations in post-disaster housing reconstruction, displaying very different mechanisms for providing support and different approaches to subsidy.
