Turning Around the Tsunami
UN-HABITAT Working in Partnership with Sr Lanka Description/Abstract: After the tsunami hit Sri Lanka in December 2004, UN-Habitat has taken a lead role in the shelter recovery and rehabilitation efforts in partnership with the Government of Sri Lanka, a multitude of donor agencies and national partner institutions.
UN-Habitat introduced a community-based approach to recovery and reconstruction of shelter and settlements and promoted an owner-driven approach. This publication aims to take stock of these efforts and analyse the role of UN-Habitat and its partners in the post-tsunami housing recovery and reconstruction process.
