Environmental Needs Assessment in Post-Conflict Situations

This guide is intended as a first step towards elaborating a systematic approach to addressing and assessing environmental impacts and concerns following natural disasters – especially those issues which might have a negative impact on the safety and welfare of people.

This guide is intended for use by anyone concerned with environmental, and related, impacts occurring in a post-disaster situation. It should be of particular relevance to those interested in ensuring that environmental issues are taken into account from the earliest possible moment of planning for early recovery.
