Abstract: Recovery is about regeneration, building back smarter and better following a disaster event, while providing opportunities to contribute to a more resilient and sustainable community for the future. Individuals and communities are connected through collective economic, emotional, physical, spiritual, environmental and cultural ties. Successful recovery recognises that both communities and individuals have a range of complex and interrelated recovery needs that should be addressed within a holistic framework that includes these components – economic, psycho-social, cultural, built environment and natural environment.
