After reading this part of the module you will be able to describe:

the basic mitigation measures to be used in preparedness and recovery planning

other common elements of preparedness plans

the use of emergency relief in rehabilitation planning

Although rehabilitation and reconstruction are distinctive activities, they should not be seen in isolation from other pre- and post-disaster actions. Reconstruction after a disaster provides many mitigation and development opportunities that may not be possible in ‘normal’ conditions. If properly utilized, these opportunities can, in return, improve the effectiveness of recovery from possible future disasters. Similarly, integration of rehabilitation planning into local and national preparedness plans contributes to better recovery.
