    The massive earthquake and subsequent tsunami waves that originated off the west coast of northern Sumatra caused extensive loss of lives and damage to coastal communities in countries affected. Damage included loss of whole villages, homes, fishing and aquaculture infrastructure, fishing vessels and gear, aquaculture facilities and markets, as well as other livelihood assets. As an initial coordination step, the regional fishery bodies in the region banded together and formed a consortium to Re store Shattered Livelihoods in Tsunami-devastated Nations (CONSRN). A workshop was organized to discuss overall policy directions on which to base reconstruction and rehabilitation. One year later a second workshop was held on 30 to 31 March 2006 in Bangkok, Thailand to review progress in rehabilitation of fisheries and aquaculture in coastal communities of tsunami affected countries in Asia. The meeting was attended by 40 participants including representatives from India, Indonesia, Malaysia, M aldives, Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Thailand as well as by representatives of CONSRN, donor agencies and NGOs. This document presents the report of the workshop which reviewed the issues that emerged from the tsunami rehabilitation process and recommended future directions for addressing outstanding needs and achievement of national strategic policies regarding tsunami rehabilitation.

    The Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai undersea volcano in the Kingdom of Tonga erupted on 15 January 2022 at 17.10 hours local time in a blast that was felt across the world. As a result of the eruption, the Government of Tonga declared a state of emergency on 16 January 2022. The eruption resulted in two events with potential impacts on agriculture livelihoods and all agriculture sub-sectors (crops, livestock, fisheries and aquaculture, and forestry): a volcanic ash cloud and a tsunami. The Ministry of Fisheries (MoF) in Tonga released an initial damage report on 1 February 2022, with a focus on damage to fisheries assets covering small-scale, tuna and snapper vessels, and their engines and gear. The total estimated damage for the fisheries and aquaculture sub-sector was TOP 10.85 million (USD 4.932 million). This report complements the MoF damage report, with an emphasis on associated losses in the fisheries and aquaculture sector as a result of the volcanic ash cloud and tsunami events.

    In the wake of the devastation caused by the tsunami of 26 December 2004, numerous international and national institutions and organizations were involved in assisting affected countries in resuming agricultural activities and restoring shattered livelihoods. The FAO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific organized a workshop on salt-affected soils from seawater intrusion. FAO also initiated several projects to assess the damage to agricultural land and plan appropriate interventions, and supp orted agricultural workshops at the country level in Indonesia and Sri Lanka to address country-specific issues and identify policies and strategies for future rehabilitation activities. One of the main challenges now is to identify interventions for longer-term rehabilitation and reconstruction of the agricultural sector by collecting information on past and ongoing rehabilitation efforts, identifying overall gaps for intervention, reviewing national strategies and exploring possibilities for s trengthening them, and coordinating the exchange of information. With these issues in focus the FAO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific organized this second workshop from 29 to 30 June 2006 in Bangkok, Thailand. The report provides country overviews for each of the five countries participating India, Indonesia, Maldives, Sri Lanka and Thailand. The report also gives presentations on a range of related topics pertaining to recovery efforts, including lessons learnt and challenges encounter ed. Included in the section on recommendations and conclusions are priorities that need to be incorporated into long-term rehabilitation and development efforts, and mechanisms for the coordination and exchange of information.
