Abstract: The period of reconstruction following an armed civilian conflict, military operation, or natural disaster is a critical window of opportunity to bring stability and normalcy to a region. Stability not only depends on resilient infrastructure, but also on reliable political systems, a national identity, and an able population to sustain the economy and system of governance. This report provides a guide to assist in planning the preliminary phases of reconstruction—pre-reconstruction. The pre-reconstruction phase is critically important to the success of any reconstruction effort. This report presents three foundational dimensions that contribute to creating and fostering a successful post-conflict or post-disaster environment: political reality awareness, cultural property protection, and capacity building. This work also presents a methodology that quantitatively assesses the specific elements that contribute to the success or failure of a planned reconstruction effort. Information provided in this report can be adapted to apply to different contexts (e.g., civilian, military) as well as to supplement existing military planning tools such as the Engineer Site Identification for the Tactical Environment (ENSITE).
