Supporting Safer Housing Reconstruction After Disasters Planning and Implementing Technical Assistance at Large Scale

This publication builds upon extensive experience in post-disaster housing recovery efforts from all over the world. UN-Habitat has been supporting local government, construction sector professionals, and communities in housing recovery for over twenty years. This document draws on this experience. These guidelines, aimed at decision makers and implementers across four main stakeholder groups (government, assistance agencies, the built environment sector, and disaster-affected communities), aims to increase the level of knowledge about technical assistance and operationalise its implementation, so that the reconstruction of housing in disaster-affected communities results in sustainably safer housing.
