Moving forward post-tsunami : voices of the vulnerable by United Nations( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On 26 December 2004, a massive earthquake of magnitude 9.0 (Richter scale) occurred off the west coast of north Sumatra, Indonesia. This was followed by a series of aftershocks that triggered tidal waves (tsunami) that travelled at over 600 km/h causing extensive coastal damage to Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar and Thailand. Later on the tsunami reached Bangladesh, India, Maldives, and Sri Lanka. Finally it reached Kenya, Seychelles, Somalia, Tanzania, and Yemen. In all over 2.4 million people were affected, with over 286,000 dead and more than 7,800 missing. The fisheries sector was hit worst by the tsunami, but crop and livestock as well as coastal ecosystems, including mangroves and other crop trees, also suffered serious damages. In terms of economic losses, estimates from India, Indonesia, Maldives, Myanmar, Somalia, Sri Lanka, and Thailand combined put the cost in the fisheries sector alone at US$ 250 million. In agriculture, the damages to crop production were mainly due to intrusion of sea water to agricultural land and deposition of saline sediment, destruction to irrigation and drainage facilities and loss of farming capital. The livelihoods of millions of farmers and fisherfolk of many coastal communities in the affected countries were completely or partially destroyed. Economies at the community level were severely affected, causing hundreds of thousands of already poor people to fall into even deeper poverty. Rebuilding the livelihoods remains one of the main challenges facing the affected Governments and international organizations and its partners following the initial phase of rescue and humanitarian relief. Committed to support the Governments of the tsunami-affected countries in the reconstruction efforts, the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) organized a study to identify the needs and aspirations of the disaster affected communities in order to identify appropriate intervention strategies especially in relation to vulnerable social groups and livelihood issues

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication contains a selection of the papers that were presented at the Seminar on Emerging Issues of Health and Mortality, held at Bangkok from 27 to 29 September 2004, providing both a broad view of the mortality situation in the region and country-specific profiles of various aspects of mortality. They show that the Asian and Pacific region has experienced a remarkable increase in life expectancy at birth thanks to the many improvements in health-care services and socio-economic conditions during the past 50 years. Although the trend of falling mortality rates is clearly evident in the region as a whole, there is a large disparity in the health and mortality situation between subregions and even within countries
