In 2017, the US government set aside $1.3 trillion for the National Response Plan to rebuild and prepare for the worst natural disasters in the next century.
It was a monumental task.
A year later, the plan was a near-bankrupt mess.
In the US, the total cost of rebuilding from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria was $2.4 trillion.
The costs to the US economy are expected to be $10 trillion over the next decade.
The federal government is now scrambling to get ready for a major natural disaster.
The National Guard, the Coast Guard, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have all stepped up to help in the aftermath of the hurricanes.
But even with all of the help, the reconstruction is a long, expensive process.
It will take years to get all of this reconstruction done and the US will likely be in the position of having a rebuilding budget of just $300 billion.
The US is a country of one billion people and, according to the Pew Research Center, the United States spends $6,955 per person on healthcare and $8,878 per person for social services.
We need to be able to do the reconstruction of this country in a way that is sustainable.
And this is not something that’s going to be easy.
In an interview with the Guardian, Graceland Tour founder Garth Brooks described the reconstruction as an “epic task” and the “greatest challenge of our lifetime”.
In a statement, Graceses CEO, Chris McKeown, told the Guardian that the company was “confident that we can do this.”
But, McKeowm said, there are other challenges to be overcome before Gracesers reconstruction is ready to be implemented.
“This is a complex project, but the foundation is there,” he said.
“We have a plan to start with, which we are working on now.
We want to finish it in 2021.
But we have a lot of work ahead of us.
The challenge of the rebuilding is huge, and it is not just for the people of the United Kingdom, it’s for people across the world.”
In a letter to members of Congress, McKay said that the “United Kingdom will not have a reconstruction of its own, and that will be our responsibility”.
The rebuilding will also require money from the international community.
“For example, we will need to raise funding from countries that are already part of the international reconstruction efforts,” he wrote.
“To do this, we need to have a new approach to reconstruction that includes a clear and robust plan for the international response.”
For the United Nations, the task will be more difficult.
The United Nations has already invested $60 billion in relief and reconstruction efforts since the hurricanes hit.
It also has an established programme for managing natural disasters and reconstruction.
But there is no clear timeline for the United Nation’s response.
And the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the country with the largest population, is not part of a major reconstruction effort.
The UAE has had to spend more than $3 trillion to rebuild its infrastructure after the disasters of 9/11.
The Emirati government is also the host country of the 2022 World Cup, a sporting event that the country expects to be a huge financial boon.
However, the UAE is not the only country struggling to rebuild after natural disasters.
In June, the British government announced a $500 million grant for reconstruction in the UK.
The UK also has to plan for a large number of people displaced by the pandemic, and has yet to determine how much money it will spend.
“The UK has been the epicentre of the UK reconstruction effort,” says David Mather, who researches the impacts of natural disasters on the UK economy at the Centre for Global Development, a think tank.
“It is in many ways the epicenter of the response.”
Mather said the UK is “still recovering” from the pandemics.
“But there is an enormous amount of debt to pay, so we are not on a trajectory that is a good long-term trajectory for UK recovery.”
There is another challenge facing the United nations reconstruction effort: it will be taking years to fully recover from the impact of natural disaster, and a reconstruction programme that can be run in such a short time frame is unlikely to be sustainable.
As we learned in 2017, rebuilding from natural disasters can be expensive.
The amount of money that is needed to rebuild the country from a major disaster is going to take years.
The reconstruction of the country will be in many cases years, if not decades, long enough to cause massive unemployment and social instability.
There is also a long way to go before reconstruction can start to benefit people in the most affected areas.
And as the world becomes increasingly dependent on energy, it is going get harder to rebuild a country with limited
