Building on the basics resource guide : planning for recreation in emergency response and recovery

Description

The purpose of the Building on the Basics resource guide is to support the planning of recreation services for those impacted by natural disasters and other emergency situations. While the role of the recreation sector in emergencies is often focused primarily on providing a staging area for first responders or shelter to people who have been displaced, there is also strong evidence that providing recreation services to those impacted by the emergency has significant benefits. The information, tools, and resources in this guide can be tailored to suit the local context and customized to fit with organizational needs and capacity. The guide includes a workbook which provides example templates for building components of a recreation services emergency plan.
