This handbook aims at contributing to disaster response reconstruction programmes that not only rebuild the physical living environment but that strengthen the capacity of communities to regain control of their own lives, with a focus on their children’s present and future well-being. It considers the Why, What, and How of planning for post-disaster reconstruction with children and families, and it focuses on supporting the coping mechanisms of families and communities and on children’s health, safety, and emotional security.
