UN-HABITAT has been involved in disaster management and reconstruction of disaster-damaged areas since its inception in 1978. In Iran, UN-HABITAT supported the preparation of the five volume Guidelines on Earthquake Disaster Management. In Nepal, it provided management and advisory support in the reconstruction of the areas affected by the 1988-earthquake. This included training of artisans, preparing draft seismic and advisory codes, community-based school construction, and technical support to owner-built shelter reconstruction. It was involved in Sri Lanka (landslide hazard mapping), Pakistan (rehabilitation of flood affected areas in Kasur, Punjab), Afghanistan (rehabilitation of war-damaged areas and disaster preparedness through community mobilisation), Mexico (seismic analysis), China (flood-damaged assessment), and Mongolia (risk assessment of Ulaanbaatar). Today it is assisting the governments of Indonesia, Sri Lanka and the Maldives in the reconstruction of Tsunami-affected areas.
In Pakistan, the Government-established Earthquake Reconstruction and Rehabilitation Agency (ERRA) has mandated UN-HABITAT to act as its technical advisor on housing and urban re-planning. To date, UN-HABITAT has received funding support from several donors including UNDP, Japan and the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) for various projects including: emergency winterized shelter support, technical and policy support to ERRA, and training support for earthquake resistant reconstruction.
