Private giving slows down considerably after the first six to eight weeks and stops six months after a disaster, while long-term recovery takes years. Issues such as mental health, affordable housing, food security and livelihoods arise in the aftermath and require flexible, sustained funding.
Disaster recovery is the process of improving individual, family and community resiliency after the occurrence of a disaster. Recovery is not only about the restoration of structures, systems and services – although they are critical. A successful recovery is also about addressing sources of inequitable and unjust outcomes, and individuals and families being able to rebound from their losses and sustain their physical, social, economic, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
CDP recovery funds maximize the impact of donations by supporting strategic, long-term recovery to help build stronger communities. We emphasize investing well rather than investing quickly to address the greatest needs and gaps in funding that emerge months after the disaster.
