Guidance on phases
Phase 1: Determine the lowest governance / administrative unit and the form of disaster/crisis related planning, e.g. preparedness or contingency planning, emergency response, or recovery plan. Count the number of localities that have completed their recovery plans; Phase 2: Count the number of locality that have completed their recovery plans; Phase 3: Count the number of locality that have completed their recovery plans; Phase 4: Count the number of locality that have completed their recovery plans.
Guidance for pre-crisis/baseline
Number of localities with either crisis/disaster preparedness and/or contingency plan that have recovery component in it.
Community/ LGU survey
The earlier the locality has a recovery plan, the higher the chance for recovery success.
