  • World Urban Campaign - Better City, Better Life
    The Tsunami that hit the Indian Ocean region on 26 December 2004 ravaged coastal communities in many countries and impacted the lives of people throughout the region. Among other countries, UNEP and UN-HABITAT responded to the situation in Sri lanka. At this island the waves caused massive destruction, affecting practically all coastal urban centres. The damage to urban infrastructure and amenities is extensive. More than 88,000 houses are reported completely destroyed, with a further 25,000 damaged, forcing more than 800,000 people into 800 makeshift camps. An unaccounted number of displaced people have moved in with friends and relatives.
