Securing an Inclusive Build Back Better Dividend
- International Recovery Platform (IRP) Secretariat
- Saskia Carusi; Mirna Abu Ata
Building back better from disasters presents opportunities to improve infrastructure, ecosystems, communities and livelihoods to be stronger, more sustainable and resilient. The dividends, or the benefits, of building back better are wide-ranging, including reduced future losses; improved standards, policies, practices, and technologies; and stimulus for economic activity. However, disadvantaged and vulnerable people, often disproportionately impacted by disasters and with poor access to recovery resources and technical assistance, are too often left behind from the dividends of building back better and an equitable recovery. This side event will explore policies and practices that can achieve more equitable recovery outcomes. Panelists will address the latest evidence of successes and failures, enablers and barriers, to a more inclusive recovery. The outcomes of this event will advance the ongoing global discourse on inclusive recovery, most recently addressed at the International Recovery Forum 2019 and World Reconstruction Conference 4.
