Raju, Emmanuel LU and Becker, Per LU (2013) In International Journal of Disaster Risk Reduction 4. p.82-91
Abstract
Coordination during disaster recovery is one of the most neglected areas of disaster risk management, as the majority of literature on coordination focuses on disaster response. The purpose of the study is to investigate the factors affecting coordination for long-term recovery. For this purpose, the study uses semi-structured interviews with different actors involved in the recovery process of the 2004 tsunami in Tamil Nadu, India. The study highlights five key factors that affect coordination in long-term recovery: (1) the need to coordinate; (2) the role of the government; (3) knowledge networking;

(4) mandates and goals and (5) coordination at the donor level. Finally, the study indicates a potential for applying a governance... (More)
