PODCAST: Post-disaster reconstruction programmes. What is the current state of play?

In recent years a series of major events has stretched the capacity of the entire global humanitarian response. But what lessons have been learnt and what are the gaps in knowledge?

Thursday 13 October 2016, Rumana Kabir, Andre Steele, Ben Walker

Today, October 13th is the International Day for Disaster Reduction. To acknowledge this fact, in the latest episode of the IMC International Development podcast, we talk with colleagues Dr. Andre Steele and Rumana Kabir about the current state of play in post-disaster recovery and reconstruction programmes.

Recently, Andre was a co-author alongside Tony Lloyd Jones and Ian Davis of a recent topic guide for the Department for International Development entitled “Effective Post-Disaster Reconstruction Programmes”. Also, Rumana is currently leading a programme to produce a guide with the World Bank that seeks to capture lessons learned from local actors  from Colombia, Serbia, Indonesia, India and Senegal on how they prepare and recover from disasters.
