Lesson learned and way forward for resilient shelter interventions in rural Myanmar

This study aims to assess shelter recovery in the Delta and its resilience for future disasters, thus addressing the priorities for action III and IV of the Hyogo Framework of Action (HFA), and to provide added value by facilitating a system wide analysis and a study of the recovery process with a focus on 'building back better'.

The findings from this systematic analysis will contribute directly to the on-going recovery efforts and be applied through recommendations from donors and government policy in recovery for the specific shelter sector, in an integrated manner.

The study, carried out with the support of the United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR), sserts that disasters can be an entry point for the promotion of sustainable development and in particular accelerate the implementation of disaster risk reduction practices and strategies.
