|In India, the tsunami swept away 16,000 people and affected a million more. It took weeks before NGOs could undertake even basic needs assessments along the 1,000 km of affected coastline.|
|Your “Lessons from the tsunami: Top Line Findings” is very impressive. Many of the findings and insights will inform the revision of our training of our Relief Emergency Response Units as we seek to improve participatory assessments, appropriate targeting and distribution with dignity. A big thank you.
