This guide captures the lessons learned about agricultural recovery after a tsunami, and will help vulnerable rural communities in the event of another tsunami.

The 2004 tsunami devastated coastal areas of the Indonesian province of Aceh, causing widespread destruction and loss of life. In collaboration with the Indonesian Ministry of Agriculture, ACIAR established a series of projects to assist with the recovery of agricultural capacity and production after the tsunami.
