This chapter focuses on risk management in the aftermath of a disaster. When disaster has struck, and after emergencies have been treated, there is still a lot of scope for minimising the final costs. Society needs to recover from the trauma of disaster as swiftly and smoothly as possible. Liabilities and compensation have to be determined as quickly and equitably as possible. In some cases the availability of affordable insurance coverage needs to be secured. And last but not least, lessons have to be drawn from past inadequacies and failures.
