Disaster Recovery: Used or Misused Development Opportunity
Disaster recovery can be a development opportunity, provided the recovery pro-
cess is used in combination with an appropriate governance system. A strong local
government is often found to be effective for a successful recovery process.
However, governance alone is not enough; it needs to be linked to appropriate tech-
nology, innovation, and education systems. In this book, a framework of GET (gov-
ernance–education–technology) is proposed for a successful recovery program.
Examples from different post-disaster situations are examined and a common
framework for GET and cross-cutting issues is described here.
This book is written for students and young researchers aspiring to a career in
disaster risk reduction and environmental studies. I hope that they will fi nd the book
useful and relevant to their work.
