Drawing on case histories of emergency relief programmes that have successfully promoted development, the book offers guidelines for fashioning assistance programmes designed to counter the effects of both natural and human-caused disasters. The authors argue that relief efforts must support and enhance existing capacities and they present an analytical framework for assessing the characteristics and needs of afflicted communities.
