Housing
The NGOs working to assist victims in the provision of
housing include World Vision and TAF, working with
Hands on Thailand, building homes, water systems, and
permanent shelters, filling gaps where government
support has been inadequate or inappropriate.  While
the construction of permanent housing was underway,
the issue of improving conditions in temporary shelters
was addressed to ensure that the living environment
of communities in these temporary shelters was habitable.
Environment
The IUCN is a key organization supporting environ 
mental rehabilitation and recovery in the disaster
affected areas. Working with UNEP, one of their key
interventions has been evaluating tsunami related
economic damage to natural resources in Thailand to
enable  greening  of reconstruction. The goal is to in 
fluence decision makers and planners by providing
convincing arguments (especially economic ones) on
the importance of the environment in post tsunami
reconstruction, and of the importance of factoring
ecosystems into coastal zone development and rebuilding.
IUCN is also working with the AFD, WWF for Nature
and the DNP on the rehabilitation of national parks
and sustainable tourism initiatives. Supporting ecosystem
based livelihoods reconstruction, rehabilitating coastal
ecosystems after the tsunami, and restoration of mangroves
are some of the other areas where IUCN is providing
expertise and inputs.

The Asia Foundation is working through the Women

Lawyers Association of Thailand (WLAT),  providing legal

aid and rights protection for victims in Ranong,

Phang Nga, and Phuket, primarily to those who have

not received appropriate and reasonable compensation

and services, and to help them obtain legal assistance.

The challenge of sustainability and continuity is one

that NGO operations are now facing.  Many of the relief

organizations that worked with affected communities

in the immediate aftermath of the tsunami have departed,

leaving half accomplished work for the organizations

left on the ground.  Some NGOs have tried to integrate

the tsunami related projects into their long term pro

grammes more fully, thus providing continued support

for the victims in their recovery efforts.
