The earthquake followed by a tsunami that hit Chile in February 2010 not only left a wave of destruction and a number of deaths of over 500 people, too started a number of relief and recovery initiatives led by different institutions, from the government to universities, private companies to NGOs. However, the roles of these actors, their interactions and the effects of these on post-disaster reconstruction have not been to date actually evaluated. There is still not enough information to judge whether all those well-intentioned efforts were or were not the best way to mobilize resources for help and recovery. The purpose of this report is precisely to collect and analyze projects, programs and policies related to the reconstruction and redevelopment in the cities of Curicó, Talca, Constitución, Pelluhue and Dichato in order to develop an independent and comprehensive assessment of the reactions for disaster relief and reconstruction in 2010.
