Training on Disaster Recovery Planning

28-30 March 2012 (Delhi, India)

UNDP-India and IRP/ADRC had jointly organized the training on Disaster Recovery Planning, March 28-30, 2012 at UNDP Country Office, New Delhi, India. Twenty eight representatives from different UN and partner organizations in India, who are engaged in long term post disaster recovery, attended the training. Most are from policy and field level that can influence recovery planning. The recently trained officials will act as master trainers who will transfer knowledge to other officials in their respective organizations. The discussions facilitated the sharing of knowledge and experience in recovery planning with the intention to further enhance capacities and enrich the recovery planning process before and after large scale disaster. Additionally, the discussions provided an avenue for participants to analyze different recovery issues and reflect on wide array of options and examples from global experiences. The outputs of the training include sets of recommendations drawn from the group discussions such as market chain analysis for livelihood recovery from possible future disaster in India, which were fine-tuned by the comments from other participants and experts. As way forward, UNDP and other UN organizations in India are exploring to transfer the knowledge on recovery planning to other stakeholders from national agencies down to the village level.
