Several of us have been wondering if DHS will ever issue the long-overdue final National Disaster Recovery Framework, as required by the Post Katrina Emergency Management Reform Act of 2006. A draft version was issued in February 2010, available on the DHS Website, but I have seen no mention of when the final version will be issued or what the it will contain.

Well, it seems the most information available publicly presently is in a presentation on the National Disaster Recovery Framework, given by Elizabeth Zimmerman of DHS at the International Recovery Forum, in Japan, January 12, 2011.  From the conference site, her 13 slides are available, but a few new concepts — such as the Whole of Community Approach to Catastrophic Planning — need further explanation, in my view.

I find it ironic, to say the least, that the international community has more information about the Framework than the domestic community does.
