The objective of this study is to analyse the strengths, weaknesses, sustainability and impact of the 26th of December 2004 tsunami response in 2 countries, Sri Lanka and Indonesia (Aceh Province). Cutting across these themes is an assessment of whether communities are now better prepared to respond to and cope with disaster.
The study was undertaken in Aceh Province of Indonesia and the South and East coast of Sri Lanka over a period of two weeks with 5-days spent meeting with community members in each of the countries. As such, the study is not an evaluation but is more a collection of experiences and reflections of affected communities in tsunami-affected areas.
