In response to the urgent need to rehabilitate areas affected by the Tsunami of 26 December 2004, the Commission decided to launch the Pro Eco II B - Post Tsunami Call for Proposals. The call is a tailor-made programme specifically designed to help local communities rehabilitate and reconstruct effectively and efficiently in the Tsunami-hit areas of India, Indonesia, Maldives, Thailand and Sri Lanka.


The focal points of the Pro Eco II B - Post Tsunami Programme are waste management/sanitation, water management/sanitation, environmental planning of coastal settlements, coastal zone management, sustainable transport, sustainable energy, local implementation of international agreements relating to natural catastrophes and/or geologic hazards.

The Serendib Foundation, founded in February 2005, focuses on the support of children and teenagers in great need. The foundation aims at offering Sri Lankan children and teenagers a human future after the Tsunami catastrophe. The steering committee of the Serendib Foundation, which is working honorarily, conceded the first concrete subsidies in October 2005. After consultions with experts of development work and the situation in Sri Lanka, the support of concrete projects was decided.


The Serendib Foundation provides financial help - particularly to the Nagenahiru Foundation - for these projects in order to improve the human situation of the population on site and support the renaturation of the valuable mangrove forests.
