Abstract

This study draws on structured interviews of 285 villagers and semi‐structured interviews of 20 key stakeholders to investigate the effectiveness of resourcing for post‐disaster housing reconstruction in Bangladesh. Through evaluating post‐disaster housing reconstruction theories and approaches, the synthesis of literature and empirical fieldwork, this paper develops a dynamic theoretical framework that moves the trajectory of post‐disaster housing reconstruction towards the construction of more resilient houses. The results of descriptive statistics, multiple regression and thematic analyses indicate that only 6 per cent of reconstructed houses could withstand cyclones, and access to resources played a pivotal role in post‐Sidr and post‐Aila housing reconstruction.
