    Rebuilding Lives after the Asian Tsunami

    ADB gained valuable expertise from the 2004 Asian Tsunami on how to reconstruct communities under difficult conditions. The 2004 Asian Tsunami brought unprecedented devastation to the hardest hit communities, particularly in Indonesia. In some areas, literally every structure was destroyed, along with every tree. The maps that showed property lines were destroyed, as were land titles, birth certificates, and other identity papers.
