an example from my classmate

here is the example

After any disaster, the affected community need to invest significant resources to meet recovery needs. Their many programs and example of post-disaster assessment, one of the example is Post Disaster Needs Assessment (PDA), this tool is a coordinated approach which provides a comprehensive and government-led assessment of the aftermath damage, losses, and recovery needs. This tool considers wide-ranging assessment from the rapid assessment of immediate needs to the most elaborate assessment of long-term recovery and risk reduction requirements. is the first step towards developing a holistic recovery program that promotes equity and inclusion.

This tool was developed by the United Nation Development Group, the World Bank and the European Union as one of the key commitments of their 2008 agreement to develop and use common assessment and recovery planning approaches in post-crisis settings. The main goal is to examine disaster’s impact, define the needs for recovery, and, in so doing, serve as the basis for designing a recovery strategy and guide donors’ funding. In addition, it works in restoring damaged infrastructure, houses, livelihoods, services, governance, and social systems, and includes an emphasis on reducing future disaster risks and building resilience.

One example of the real-world disaster that used PDNA is after Neal Earthquakes on 25 April and 12 May 2015, nearly 9,000 lives and over a half a million homes have been destroyed. This is a colossal loss for an impoverished country. After that the need for recovery assessment was important. PDNA exercise was launched simultaneously to take stock of our damage, loss and needs so far.
