Past experiences on postdisaster response have highlighted the need for more context-specific approaches that not only produce an effective and efficient resettlement response, but also contribute directly to a sustainable and long-term reduction of local vulnerabilities.
Based on the lessons learned from the postdisaster response in Bangladesh following the cyclones of 2007 and 2009, Caritas Bangladesh, with the support of BUET and CRAterre and the support of Secours Catholique-Caritas France and Caritas Luxembourg, took up the challenge of involving local communities, operational stakeholders and academics to foster a response linking emergency, rehabilitation and development.
It is the synthesis of this history, as well as links to all the tools and methods developed by this project between 2007 and 2019, which you can access by leafing through the book, which is in your hands.
