Socioeconomic Empowerment of Tsunami Affected Communities
Socioeconomic Empowerment of Tsunami Affected Communities - Project
This Tsunami project in the Batticaloa District of Sri Lanka aims to address specific needs in re-establishing structures and systems that have fallen into disrepair and establishing sustainable livelihoods. This includes improving farming techniques, diversification of incomes through training and developing new businesses. This will be supported by community-led improvements to irrigation, drainage, roads, culverts and land rehabilitation. Water conservation will also be an important element.
