Abstract: This research presents the study on assessing cyclone Aila recovery in Koyra, Bangladesh. It aimed at measuring the progress of recovery from people's perception. A score-based quantification methodology was developed to this aim which included a series of focus group discussion and a scoring technique to construct synthetic recovery curve from peoples' perception. Prevailing condition of different sectors (local economy, coastal polders, etc.) in different years (2009, 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2017-18) since cyclone Aila hit was quantified following the score-based assessment technique. This allowed to illustrate the changes of sectoral condition as the recovery evolved. The research is still ongoing as a part of an academic programs. This paper only presents the initial findings of the recovery assessment with a case study on progress of economic recovery and recovery of coastal polder. The preliminary results show that there is a sign of improvement of economic condition than that of before Aila hit. On the other hand, the condition of coastal polder is weaker than before Aila.
