Rebuilding Sri Lanka - TAFREN

A High-level Coordination Meeting on Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Assistance to Tsunami-Affected Countries was held in Manila on the 18th of March 2005.

The development community’s response to the tsunami disaster has now shifted from the relief phase to the rehabilitation and reconstruction phase. Jointly prepared needs assessments have been largely completed and the preparation of projects has begun. The international community must carry the significant momentum of the initial relief effort into a longer-term program of rehabilitation and reconstruction – to restore livelihoods, rehabilitate communities, re-establish social services, and rebuild infrastructure.

The purpose of the meeting was to provide a forum for regional coordination and information sharing to ensure effective recovery efforts and avoidance of wasteful duplication and overlap during the medium term.
