Impact Assessments of Distribution of Government Funds for House Damages in Five Selected Districts of Sri Lanka, 2014, University of Peradeniya

This reports highlights the findings from a research project conducted by University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka in response to the ‘Preparedness and Resilience Research’ small grants program (Phase I) implemented by Response 2 Resilience Institute and the Global Disaster Preparedness Center

Abstract:

The Government of Sri Lanka spends a considerable amount of development funds for the reconstruction of houses damaged during various disasters. Despite the recent financial contributions of the government to reconstruct disaster-affected houses, the owners do not incorporate hazard-resilient features when rebuilding. Most of the beneficiaries have little or no awareness of resilient features and do not  consider these when rebuilding their houses.
