Post-disaster Guidelines launched by LFRTD
The Lanka Forum for Rural TRansport and Development (LFRTD), an affliated national Forum Group (NFG) of the IFRTD, has launched Guidelines for Re-building the Rural Transport System Destroyed by the Tsunami. (2005 LFRTD).
In tsunami ravaged Sri Lanka the initial phase of relief grants to Tsunami victims has given way to reconstruction and rehabilitation. Both local and international organisations are currently involved in the reconstruction and rehabilitation of affected rural transport infrastructure. However there are no acceptable technical standards or approved methodologies for these efforts.
These Guidelines have been developed for use by organisations active in the field of post-disaster reconstruction and rehabilitation in developing countries.
The Guidelines can be downloaded as a three page document at http://www.ifrtd.gn.apc.org/new/nfgs/srila01.php
