The Role of Nongovernmental Organizations in Long-Term Human Recovery After Disaster: Reflections From Louisiana Four Years Aft

Human recovery is the process of rebuilding social and daily routines and support networks that foster physical and mental health and well-being. RAND researchers conducted a facilitated discussion with Louisiana NGO leaders to capture lessons learned and challenges faced by these organizations in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The subsequent lessons also serve to inform potential policy changes and future research directions.
Over the past four years, countless volunteers and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) have provided manpower and resources to help communities respond to and recover from the impact of hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Compared to previous disasters, the level of devastation and the challenges of rebuilding were far more significant for families and communities in the region. The purpose of this occasional paper is to summarize some of the lessons learned by NGOs as these organizations worked through the cycle of emergency response into a lengthy long-term recovery process that continues today. This paper also offers potential actions for federal and state agencies to support long-term human recovery, an often-overlooked element of the disaster recovery cycle. State and federal health officials and NGOs may be interested in using this document to inform their decisions about changes to disaster policies that better define the components of and organizational roles and responsibilities in long-term human recovery.
