The Tsunami disaster in the Asia region was quite a complex one in the sense that entire clusters of coastal villages were totally or partially destroyed wherein people lost everything and this left the population in a situation of dire poverty. The disaster response was also quite a challenge in the sense that the classical disaster response based on the continuum model was questioned; there was a need to address the emergency response from a more comprehensive perspective, taking into account the need to go for a long term development oriented disaster response.

Right Based Approach:

It requires a participatory approach with involvement of all stakeholders and a change in paradigm when it comes to concrete intervention, in particular the disaster situations in a conflict environment either ongoing conflict, or post conflict context.
