Sustainable Exit Strategies for Tsunami Related Programmes, by
Sanayi Marcelline, ICES, Colombo and Oxfam International, 2010.
This study identifies good practices in implementing closure
for post disaster relief programmes. The findings and
recommendations of the study draw on the experiences of aid
organizations/INGOs and implementing partners, that were engaged
in tsunami related rehabilitation and reconstruction programmes
and on the opinions of the beneficiary communities. The main
focus of the study is to identify how aid organizations/INGOs
could formulate exit strategies that ensured the sustainability
of programmes once aid interventions came to an end.
