The devastating impact of disasters on the worlda€™s population is on the increase, influenced by climate change, urbanization, and persistent high levels of poverty, among other factors. There is a growing demand for reconstruction at scale. This book asks whether large-scale reconstruction can be participatory and developmental; can rebuilding be truly people-centred, contributing to breaking the cycle of poverty and dependence? Can reconstruction reduce peoplea€™s vulnerability to disasters and other shocks? Building Back Better examines the context for reconstruction, and shows how developments in the fields of housing, participation and livelihoods have changed and enriched approaches to reconstruction. It explores the practice of implementing large-scale reconstruction of programmes in Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Indonesia and India. The book informs policy, programme design, practice and evaluation. It will be of interest to agencies involved in reconstruction and authorities in countries regularly faced with disasters, as well as to students, academics and researchers.Ayni is a Quechua word meaning cooperation and solidarity, dating back to pre- Hispanic times and involving reciprocal work.
