Comparative Recovery Paper and Book

After Great Disasters; How Six Countries Managed Community Recovery (2016); by Laurie A. Johnson and Robert B. Olshansky. The 78 page version is a free download.

The Diva highly recommends this short paper, and the price is right. A useful additional to everyone’s library.

Update: The full book is now available for a modest price.

Just so you know, the full-length version, with lots of details for all six countries, is just out this week. The book was just printed last week, and can be ordered for $30 each. In addition, Lincoln tells us that the pdf version will be posted this Friday.

  1. Interesting publication … very insightful. Does a nice job of identifying issues impacting recovery efforts associated with major disasters along with describing how other countries approach the recovery process. Exit question — “Despite alll the after action reports and lessons learned studies, why does essentially the same concerns and problems arise with major disaster recovery work. It seems that the same issues always plague recovery efforts.”
