Why does recovery matter?

Recovery: Developing tailor-made programmes that help post-crisis countries strengthen environmental management to build resilience and support the consolidation of peace.

UNEP's work in the field of recovery covers many different facets, from post-crisis country recovery programmes to work under UNEP's Environmental Cooperation for Peacebuilding programme. 

UNEP supports countries in the aftermath of a disaster or conflict to identify and address environmental risks that could have serious social and economic impacts.This longer-term investment of time and resources is essential for the sustainable growth of countries affected by disasters and conflicts.
