Helping Regions Impacted by Natural Disaster to Recover and Renew: policy brief

  • Year: 2013
  • Author: The Regional Australia Institute
  • Country: Australia
The economic and business components of the disaster recovery process are often misunderstood, leading to poor outcomes for the affected community. 
 
Natural disaster recovery policy needs to reflect recovery processes and the individual needs of each community in order to achieve improved outcomes. This requires policy that recognises the integral role that early economic recovery, and in particular local business recovery, has to overall community recovery, as well as establishing baseline community resilience and vulnerability indicators.
