Video on lessons of disaster recovery and resilience in the context of the Indian Ocean Tsunami 2004


This video sums up discussions of the DAAD Alumni seminar „11 years after the Indian Ocean Tsunami 2004 – Lessons of Disaster Recovery, Rehabilitation & Resilence“ conducted by TH Köln University of Applied Sciences, United Nations University (UNU) – Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS) and the Social Policy Analysis and Research Centre (SPARC) of the Faculty of Arts, University of Colombo on the topics of disaster recovery, rehabilitation, resilience and their effective and sustainable implementation in practice.

Please note that the video is very short and lacks quite a number of specifics such as deaths also in Africa and more background on vulnerability and resilience. However, the main message we want to convey is the discussion of the effectiveness and sustainability of short and long term aid and recovery measures implemented in context of the Indian Ocean Tsunami 2004.

Special thanks to all participants of the DAAD Alumni Seminar who shared their experience and expertise as well as to the video’s motiondesigner Johannes Stahl (
