Tsunami waves caused by a 9.0-magnitude earthquake near Sumatra affected over two thirds of Sri Lanka's coastline and caused catastrophic destruction on 26 December 2004. More than 31,000 people died, thousands went missing, about 440,000 people were displaced, and an estimated 1 to 2 million of the 19 million people were affected. This report validates the completion report's assessment of the project, which aimed to restore basic social infrastructure, community services, and livelihood in the tsunami-affected areas of Sri Lanka.
