There is no timeframe for recovery. It cannot be measured by how long it takes and there is no simple definition of “done”. People and communities affected by disasters recover, adapt, reclaim and renew at their own pace, with needs changing over time. As these processes take place the kind of support required changes too. Different planning, skills and capabilities are needed at different times.
This section aims to provide guidance on how to enact and support sustainable, long term recovery approaches that can adapt and respond to evolving community need.
