Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to investigate the critical success factors (CSFs) of community-based post-disaster housing reconstruction projects (CPHRP) during the pre-construction stage. Design/methodology/approach: An extensive literature review and interviews were undertaken to establish selected factors contributing to the success of community-based post disaster housing reconstruction projects. Following this, a questionnaire survey was administered to key stakeholders in order to perceive their view on CSFs of CPHRP. Data was analysed by deploying statistical software. Practical implications: The establishment of CSFs in CPHRP helps key stakeholders to identify factors that must exist and go well during pre-construction of CPHRP in order to ensure the success of the programme. Findings: It was found that twelve factors are considered to be the CSFs: transparency and accountability, appropriate reconstruction policy/strategy, an understanding of the community based method, gathering trust from the community, facilitator capacity, good coordination and communication, sufficient funding availability, implementer capacity, having a significant level of community participation/control, government support, involvement of all community members, and successful beneficiary identification. Originality/value: The paper is very specific as it attempts to discover the CSFs of CPHRP during the pre-construction stage. Keywords: Disaster, Housing reconstruction, Community-based, Critical success factors, Indonesia
