Initiating Dialogue on Post-Disaster Reconstruction

SAWTEE is initiating a dialogue through research and monthly forums on reconstruction and the impacts of earthquake on different sectors of the economy. This endeavour aims at streamlining issues that are touched upon by the disaster and reconstruction so that a broader and clearer picture on the reconstruction emerges. SAWTEE has identified nine thematic areas to be discussed during the monthly forums. For each topic, research will be undertaken by a subject expert which shall be discussed and finalised during the monthly forums amid the experts and stakeholders of these monthly forums. Following the discussion, SAWTEE will prepare a policy brief based on the research and suggestions floated on the forum which will be disseminated to relevant stakeholders, including the policy-makers.
