Early Recovery aims to generate self-sustaining nationally-owned processes through the provision of a set of specific programmatic actions, basing interventions on a thorough understanding of the context to address root causes and vulnerabilities as well as the immediate results of crisis.
Early Recovery enables plans and strategies to be translated into concrete actions that support affected populations to regain their way of life, assets and capabilities with enhanced resilience to future disasters. It builds on people’s spontaneous efforts to cope, recover and rebuild after a disaster.
Early Recovery programmes encompass specific interventions to help people move from dependence on humanitarian relief towards sustainable development. They usually start in the emergency phase, are the key element in the stabilization or consolidation phase in post-conflict settings, and wind down as national institutions take over the direction and guidance of development programming.
