Recovery and reconstruction

Public policies to limit the longer term social and economic impacts of disasters are essential components of a holistic approach to civil protection. This chapter considers practices in support of business continuity planning, early recovery and reconstruction. It examines the actions of key industries to maintain operations and public policies in support of low income households affected by disasters. It also describes changes made over time to refine Mexico’s innovative risk transfer mechanisms for financing the reconstruction of public infrastructure through the FONDEN Disaster Reconstruction Fund. This specific financial mechanism is tailored to the country’s high exposure to hazards.
