Long Description
Operations Evaluation Studies, Post-Conflict Reconstruction Series.Post-conflict reconstruction is not new to the World Bank. In fact, the Bank's first loan was to the Government of France to rebuild the country after World War II. What is new, is the rapidly increasing number of post-conflict areas, and the enormity and complexity of rebuilding in each case. To better assist post-conflict areas in the future, the Bank is studying past experiences in dealing with post-conflict reconstruction. This volume represents one in a series. The other volumes discuss post-conflict reform in Bosnia and Herzegovina and El Salvador. Although the Bank played a significant role in assisting with post-conflict reconstruction in each country, the causes of state failure or collapse differ. Also different are the factors that influenced the initiation or resumption of Bank operations. This publication focuses on the World Bank's experience in Uganda.

Long Description
Disaster Risk Management Series. ...Disaster losses include not only the shocking direct impacts that we see on the news, such as the loss of life, housing, and infrastructure, but also indirect impacts such as the foregone production of goods and services caused by interruptions in utility services, transport, labor supplies, suppliers, or markets. Although natural disasters have long been considered a tragic interruption to the development process, the development community now links disasters to development. An earthquake in San Fernando, California may suffer the equal amount of direct economic loss as an earthquake in Venezuela. The disasters differ in the recovery time and loss of life experienced by each country. In the end, the recovery factors become an issue of basic development. It is doing development right and making sure that human activities contribute to reducing disasters rather than exacerbating them. This volume contains work that was produced over the first two years of operation of the World Bank's Disaster Management Facility and led to the establishment of the ProVention Consortium in Washington, DC. It is organized into three parts. Part I on risk identification contains chapters on the economic impacts of natural disasters in developing countries, including flooding. It includes Buenos Aires as an example. It also presents time scales of climate and disaster. The second part explores aspects of reducing disaster risk. Part III examines strategies for developing countries to share and transfer disaster risk more effectively. This volume will be of interest to academics, the private sector, government and international agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and Bank staff.
