This is a guideline for World Bank Task Team Leaders (TTLs) entrusted with the design and execution of assessments to determine disaster impacts as well as post-disaster needs for recovery, reconstruction and disaster risk reduction or management. It is based on experience in recent years when the World Bank has led or participated in similar exercises to assist member states affected by disasters. It is intended to facilitate the work of TTLs and to provide a framework for the identification of post-disaster needs.
