THE Post-disaster needs assessment to recovery report has suggested the need for coordination in the administrative sector to make the emergency aid system strong, to establish information systems and early an warning system, to give priority to recovery tasks, to ensure transparency and responsibility for resource sharing and to make administrative systems and its rules and regulations strong.
“This report is aimed at systematically assessing the recovery of about two million people who were affected by the disaster,” said Vice President U Nyan Tun in his remarks at a ceremony to release the report in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday.
It is estimated that the flood and landslides that hit the country during the past rainy season caused about US$ 1.5 billion losses and the cost of recovery is estimated to be about the same amount as the losses, said the report.
In his opening remarks at the ceremony, Vice President U Nyan Tun acknowledged the relentless efforts of the social organisations, the members of the Tatmadaw and those who sacrificed their lives to rescue people affected by the disaster which hit the country from July to September.
Following the opening ceremony the participants of the ceremony discussed tasks, plans and strategies for the recovery of people in disaster-hit areas.
