Abstract

Sri Lanka was found to be a disaster prone country in the recent past. The impact is more severe
when developing countries are faced to various natural or man-made disasters. Impact appears
in many forms; loss of lives and property, economic impact, social impact etc. As a developing
country, Sri Lanka is much more concerned with the country’s economic development.
Therefore, it is wise to look into post-disaster activities in development perspectives and
integrate disaster risk reduction concerns into economic development activities. This paper
reveals the importance of post-disaster infrastructure reconstruction in economic development.
A comprehensive literature review was carried out regarding the role of infrastructure in disaster
management, economic development together with the key indicators of economic
development.
