The 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami was a disaster unlike any in recent history. The race to deliver aid and rebuild communities involved coordination between governments and aid agencies on an unparalleled scale. Lessons learned have since been applied in emergencies, such as the Haiti earthquake in 2010 and Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines in 2013. In this audioboom, Nick Guttmann, our Head of Humanitarian, describes how the Boxing Day disaster changed emergency work around the world.
