The 30-60-90 day disaster recovery plan, influenced by antifragility principles, aims to ensure survival and growth from disasters. The first 30 days focus on restoring business services, jobs, and economic stability with the help of temporary facilities, alternative models, and immediate relief government policies. The next phase (days 30-60) emphasizes community recovery, including emotional, social, and economic aspects, involving community support groups, mental health initiatives, and job programs. The final phase (days 60-90) builds long-term resilience, aiming to restore the pre-disaster state and improve and prepare for future calamities through infrastructure investments, policy adjustments, and robust emergency plans. This plan promotes a dynamic, learning-based approach to disaster recovery, aiming for an antifragile society.
