Empowering People After Natural Disasters: Lessons from the Post-tsunami Legal Assistance, Governance, and Anticorruption Project in Sri Lanka
|Type:||Brochures and Flyers|
|Series:||Law and Policy Reform Briefs|
ADB’s posttsunami legal assistance, governance, and anticorruption work under the Tsunami-Affected Areas Rebuilding Project in Sri Lanka, which has assisted about 35,000 people, provides such experience. It also served as the precedent for a similar governance intervention in Asian Development Bank (ADB) assistance to Pakistan after the 2005 Pakistan earthquake, which has assisted approximately another 27,000 people. Past experience also suggests that the issues raised here should be considered and addressed well before natural disasters hit.
