Recovery is the process of coming to terms with the impacts of a disaster and managing the disruptions and changes caused, which can result, for some people, in a new way of living. Good communication from organizations or individuals helping in this process is key.
This guide is for people or organisations planning to work, or currently working and managing information in a sudden onset post emergency/disaster environment, as well as those supporting communities experiencing long-term, slow onset crises and stress. While the advice in this guide is not designed for immediate relief services, much of the information provided is applicable to all stages of emergency management. The guide consists of 4 chapters: general information, methods of communication, inclusive communication and additional resources.
