Some timber can be recycled for furniture construction and other debris can be processed and sold and contribute to strengthening economic livelihoods. Create opportunities for women and vulnerble groups to engage and benefit from recycling
age/gender-different groups of society will recycle different things egg rags for sanitary napkins, or children's toys can be made out of different items.
Indicator used for response monitoring ?
Threshold / Standard
This indicator may be monitored together with the Shelter cluster or livelihoods clusters who support recycling of debris. For shelter purposes a standards and specs can be calculated. This can also be done for recycling for furniture and scrap metal (CGI) purposes. However the calculations will have to be done locally.
Guidance on phases
Phase 1: in preliminary assessment determine the damage and losses (DALA) of materials Phase 2: together with local authorities and private sector and communities establish the type and amount material to be recycled. Phase 3: support the assessment, mapping, salvaging, transport and recycling mechanisms (roofing, shelter, construction, furniture, scrap metal, car repair etc.)
