Rec­og­niz­ing this chal­lenge as an oppor­tu­ni­ty for trans­for­ma­tive change, there is a grow­ing call to pur­sue a “green” approach to recon­struc­tion that extends beyond focus­ing sole­ly on ener­gy and con­struc­tion mat­ters, encom­pass­ing broad­er con­sid­er­a­tion for a sus­tain­able eco­nom­ic devel­op­ment includ­ing bio­di­ver­si­ty, cli­mate, social fac­tors, and mar­ket dynam­ics.
