The importance of including actors and stakeholders in planning processes is currently widely acknowledged. This importance is greatly increased during post-disaster planning. One reason for this is that risk is socially constructed, and therefore the understanding of risk changes with people’s perception, particularly to what degree they accept risk. Inclusion can lead to other benefits like increased transparency of the decision making process and the opportunity to profit from local people’s knowledge. A difficulty in implementing participative processes is that it remains unclear who should be included and to which degree. This chapter gives insight into this topic, illustrating the process of participation with experiences from Japan, Indonesia, the USA, Slovakia and Germany and gives an overview of important factors for spatial planners to keep in mind throughout the planning process after a disaster.

Keywords:   participative processes, post-disaster planning, Japan, Indonesia, USA, Slovakia, Germany
