Disasters threaten all parts of the world and they appear to beincreasing in frequency, scale and intensity. Despite hugeimprovements in the emergency response, permanent reconstruction isoften uncoordinated, inefficiently managed and slow to begin.International agencies are geared to an efficient response in termsof humanitarian relief, but they are not well versed in therequirements of long-term reconstruction, which is oftenconstrained by lack of planning and poorly coordinated management.

The construction industry is typically engaged in a range ofcritical activities after a disaster, including provision oftemporary shelter in the immediate aftermath and restoration ofpermanent shelter and public infrastructure once the immediatehumanitarian needs have been attended to. Post-DisasterReconstruction of the Built Environment identifies thechallenges that face the industry and highlights best practice toenable the construction industry to address those problems whichmake an effective response to these unexpected events difficult.Written by an international team of experts, this book will helpresearchers and advanced students of construction understand theproblems faced by communities and the construction industry whenfaced with a natural or man-made disaster, and identify theplanning and management processes required by the industry to mountan effective response.
