The United Nations Development Group (UNDG), the European Union (EU) and the World Bank (WB) signed a joint declaration in 2008 on Post-Crisis Assessments and Recovery Planning committing their organizations to collaborate and use common assessment and recovery planning tools in post-crisis settings, including disaster situations. Since the signing of the agreement, the three partners have jointly promoted and supported countries to apply the Post-Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA) and the Disaster Recovery Framework (DRF) tool in systematically and comprehensively assessing post disaster needs and developing and implementing recovery strategies. A great deal of this promotion has also been in the form of training of technical officers in countries across the world on the application of the PDNA/DRF tools. The PDNA/DRF tool is now widely accepted and applied in many countries in post disaster assessments and recovery planning.
The side event at UR 2018 is aimed at providing participants at the forum with an overview of the Post Disaster Needs Assessment and Disaster Recovery Framework (PDNA/DRF) tool. The session is planned as follows:
|Date||Session||Session topic||Session objective||Participants|
|May 14th 2018
|9.00 – 10.30 am||Introduction to PDNA/ DRF Process||To understand the history, key players, rationale, the scope, the added value and the limitations of a PDNA||Government, UN, NGOs, Civil Society, Academia and others|
|11.00am – 1.00pm||PDNA/ DRF simulations||To demonstrate coordinated team work, negotiation and time management in context, effects and impact analysis, recovery strategy formulation and prioritization processes of the PDNA/ DRF||Government, UN, NGOs, Civil Society, Academia and others|
