Launch of the ADBI Book on: Learning from Tsunami - Aid and Reconstruction after a Disaster
Date: 17 February 2011 (Thursday)
Venue: Seminar Rooms 2 and 3, S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS), Nanyang Technological University, S4, Level B4.
Organised by: RSIS Centre for NTS Studies
The Centre for NTS Studies organised and hosted the Asian Development Bank Institute’s launch of the volume, Learning from Tsunami – Aid and Reconstruction after a Disaster, on 17 February 2011. The book is a timely initiative given the increasing occurrence of natural disasters in the region and the need to better manage aid and reconstruction efforts. It also contributes to the mainstreaming of NTS studies and, more importantly, consolidates the perspectives of all stakeholders involved in disaster response. The discussion was helmed by the lead authors, Peter McCawley and Sisira Jayasuriya.
The Centre has had the pleasure of hosting a seminar by Sisira Jayasuriya in 2008. Then, she spoke on the economic aspects of reconstruction in Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Thailand in the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami. This publication is a further development of Sisira Jayasuriya’s research in this field.
