The objective of the PDNA was to quantify the damage and loss resulting from the effects of those disaster and to estimate the recovery and reconstruction needs. The PDNA 2019 drew lessons from the 2015 flood response to determine and quantify multi-sectoral needs and to build consensus to implement a systematic recovery and resilience building initiative. The assessment estimates that the total value of the effects of the disaster stands at US$ 220.2 million, while the total needs for recovery and reconstruction stands at US$ 370.5 million.
