    CNN World Report: Rapid Needs Assessment Survey in Sri Lanka

    19 January 2005

    In the days immediately after the tsunami, the ILO's JobsNet offices in Sri Lanka provided the only means of communication in many of the affected areas via their internet connection which continued to function when all others failed. Now, as relief in the form of food and shelter pours into the country, survivors are wondering how they will get back to the business of earning a living. The ILO is analysing the results of a rapid needs assessment survey in Sri Lanka that not only will show what jobs were lost, but what survivors need to regain their livelihoods.
