Four phases of disaster management are well-established in disaster related literature. The phases are emergency relief, recovery and reconstruction, mitigation, and preparedness. Long-term recovery is the process of restoring a community to a stable and functional state. An effective long-term recovery support to disaster-impacted communities enables the community to restore, redevelop and revitalise the environmental, social, economic fabric of the community and build resilience. Recovery should begin during response and aim to return the disaster-impacted area to pre-disaster status, or even better than before.
