What is Early Recovery “Is a multidimensional process of recovery, from a man made or natural disaster, that begins in a humanitarian setting. It is guided by development principles that seek to build on humanitarian programmes and catalyze sustainable development opportunities. It aims to generate self sustaining, nationally owned, resilient processes for post crisis recovery. It encompasses the restoration of basic services, livelihoods, shelter, governance, security and rule of law, environment and social dimensions, including the reintegration of displaced populations.”
Approach Augment ongoing emergency assistance operations by building on humanitarian programmes. Support spontaneous recovery initiatives by affected communities. Establish the foundations for longer-term recovery.
