In response to the tsunami which hit eight Asian countries on 26 December 2004, a project was initiated to increase understanding of how this natural disaster had affected people who were particularly vulnerable due to social marginalization, disability status, age and gender. Studies were commissioned in Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Thailand and national workshops were organized in those countries. The reports, based on the studies and presented in this book, aim to offer an overview of the efforts that have been made to mitigate the suffering of those who were affected and particularly to assess progress towards assisting communities to restore livelihoods and move towards a sustainable long-term recovery.
