Recently, the Diva was asked by a university researcher what her thoughts were on the need for improvements in the disaster recovery process. She had a long list, ranging from lack of legislation regarding recovery, lack of federal guidance and assistance, lack of a body of case studies and a knowledge base, and problems with federal staffing for long term recovery efforts.
So, now it is your turn: What recommendations do you , the readers of this blog, have? Some of you are practitioners, some are researchers or academics, some of you are outside of the U.S. I would love to hear from you. ( And next time I am asked for recommendations, I would like to have a bushel of them!!)
NOTE: If you prefer to offer them anonymously, send them to me directly rather than using the comment feature below. I will take care of masking your name.
Update: Keep those comments coming. So far some really excellent suggestions.
