Effective Disaster Recovery - What lessons can we learn from Australia's Black Saturday Bushfires?

We can be thankful disasters such as Black Saturday don't come along very often. On the flip side, we don't necessarily prepare as well as we should for disasters that do strike our communities - or learn from them in the aftermath.

This report documents our first-hand view of the lessons learned from the recovery process and conveys our view of what to do and what not to do through the recovery period. It is offered to communities and governments around the world in the hope they will consider the implications.
