WRC5 | Rethinking Recovery Governance: Planning & Managing Recovery in a COVID-19 Transformed World

The plenary will highlight key governance issues including: policy and strategic frameworks governing complex multisectoral recovery across the disaster and conflict spectrums, the role of NDMAs and reconstruction agencies in recovery from complex crises including public health emergencies; assessing, planning and managing recovery from complex crisis, jurisdictional challenges in recovering from a national-level emergency and localized disasters, especially in a conflict setting; implementation challenges and capacity constraints (human, financial, institutional, supply chain) in undertaking disaster recovery in conflict settings; reaching vulnerable populations and economic sectors, and addressing the structural drivers of disasters and conflict; building conflict sensitivity in disaster recovery programs; the ability to obtain, understand and communicate information; and building resilience to future shocks in a way that helps to resolve conflict. The session will also identify innovations and good practices that address these issues and light the way forward for improved governance models.
