In the aftermath of a disaster, a timely recovery is critical to safeguard development gains and to protect the most vulnerable households and communities. For recovery to be effective, it is essential that the impact of the disaster is thoroughly assessed and interventions well planned. The Post-Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA) and the Disaster Recovery Framework (DRF) are two globally accepted instruments that governments can leverage to assess a disaster's socio-economic impact and to develop a comprehensive disaster recovery plan. This training of trainers aims at equipping DRR and recovery practitioners with the necessary technical and methodological skills to train stakeholders in disaster-prone countries on the PDNA methodology and the DRF process. The training will be conducted by representatives of the United Nations Development Group, the World Bank and the European Union, which are the organisations that have developed the PDNA and DRF instruments.

The five-day training of trainers (ToT) will provide participants with an opportunity to acquire and/or refresh technical knowledge on the PDNA and DRF tools as well as in-depth methodological training to enhance their training design and facilitation skills.
