Disasters affect everyone, the poor and the wealthy. However, it is often the poor who are left worse off – they live on the most vulnerable land, their houses are the least stable, and they have very little in the way of capital reserves to rebuild their lives.

We focus disaster risk reduction programmes on countries that are most disaster prone. Following a disaster there is an assessment where Habitat for Humanity staff spend time analysing the situation and then offer a number of pathways to permanent housing. People in different situations have different needs and so will be placed on different pathways.
