The Maldives: One year after the Tsunami
This joint report—issued by the Government of the Maldives, the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent (IFRC), the World Bank and Asian Development Bank (ADB), Japanese International Cooperation System (JICS), the Red Cross Societies of Australia, Canada, France, Germany, United Kingdom, and the United States, national non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and the UN—is one example of the many strong partnerships and close coordination that have defined the recovery process in the Maldives. It is an attempt to take stock of the considerable achievements of the last year as well as to highlight important challenges that lie ahead for 2006 and beyond.
The report focuses on five broad themes: shelter and internally displaced people; universal access to quality health and education opportunities; rehabilitation of livelihoods; the reconstruction of essential infrastructure; and environmental sustainability and disaster management. These have been identified as key national priorities, and form the basis of an ongoing partnership between the international community and the people of the Maldives.
