Has anyone done planning in nation-building? Not disaster-relief, but contingency planning to rebuild a city, community, or even country?

I read about the botched effort to rebuild Haiti, and I was wondering if there is contingency planning to rebuild a community hit by famine, quake, civil war, etc.
I mean there are contingency plans to bring emergency relief in these situations, but are there detailed plans to rebuild the whole community after the first phase of
relief is over?
