Lessons from Aceh: Key Considerations in Post-Disaster Reconstruction


Lessons from Aceh: Key Considerations in Post-Disaster Reconstruction Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004 devastated the coastline in Aceh province on the northern tip of Indonesia leaving 167,000 people dead and over half a million people without homes. This resulted in an unprecedented humanitarian response. Over the next three years the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Member Agencies collectively constructed almost 20,000 houses in Aceh, in addition to numerous schools and health centers. In Lessons from Aceh, their experiences are used as a case study to illustrate the practical realities of delivering a successful program and the range of issues that need to be considered; highlighting best and worst practices while recognizing that there is validity in different approaches within the same response. Lessons from Aceh is targeted at senior managers, decision-makers and program advisers to help them make informed decisions, manage expectations and reduce risk in future responses. It will also be of interest to built environment professionals, researchers or policy makers. An important theme throughout is the way in which reconstruction can act as a catalyst to recovery, contribute to long-term development and reduce vulnerability to future disasters. In Aceh the most successful reconstruction programs have left a legacy that is much more than just bricks and mortar.
